Wow, the back gable

We are pretty excited to announce that we finished the siding, soffit and trim on the back gable. We installed the last of the trim today and painted the nail heads and touched up the paint where needed. It looks pretty great, me thinks. But please see for yourself.

A better look at the soffit. The vents are only installed to provide a top vent for the air space behind the siding and don't actually vent the roof.

Our next project will focus on finishing the boiler installation. It is definitely turning to fall outside, the air is dry, the nights cool and we have already dipped down into the 40’s. We have family coming to town the end of September and should knock the heating project out by then.
