it's a family affair!

in between rain, gardening, working and *sometimes* sleeping, we've all been helping Dave with the siding. Dave has been very patient in teaching us all the basics of siding technique, and with a few extra hands the siding can go up relatively quickly.

M was eager to go out and help, and she's braver than me when it comes to ladders!

A and B were just as eager to help out on the ground, although baby B did manage to sneak up the ladder onto the porch roof! she popped her head up over the roof line and said "hi dada!"

with this last piece of siding, the addition is *nearly* done. just a few more pieces near the eaves, but most of the work is done.

yesterday Dave started on the south side of the main house, beginning with the part above the porch roof.

while the girls were napping, i went out to help for a little bit. just cutting the siding for him makes the job go so much faster.

here's the view from the bridge. as you can see, there is still alot of house to go, but we're making a dent in the bucket! both N and G helped with the siding, too, but i didn't get any pictures of that.
we're all looking forward to the completion of this project, and know that it will make the house look so much nicer. then it's back to the inside work... drywalling, painting, floors, electrical, lighting: the list is endless!

Wow, it's looking good.
Many hands make light work, that's for sure.
