The White Rose


The siding has been giving me fits. I almost gave up and went to clapboard. Almost. But then I decided to slow down and cut out all the window (and door) openings so that I would get the effect I want. It's tedious, but turning out much better. In the top image you can see the piecing, and even though I've lined up the board "planks" the seams will show. Filling with spackle won't hide this, so I had to stop and stare at the house for awhile. I didn't want to cut all the openings; but the oval ones are the most difficult, and while slow going, it's turning out right (see bottom image).

This is like clapboard siding that comes on basswood sheets 3.5 x 24 inches. You've got to perfectly butt the edge, because unlike clapboard, there is no lap. Thanks all! :)
