That should have been my motto throughout the exterior construction.
I'm glad that some people on this crew were good with heights. I'm also glad that so far there have been no construction accidents. I hated to look when work was going on up high, but getting a photo of it for future memories seemed like an important reason to scare myself!
A home-made scaffolding extension had to be made to be able to finish the back second-story siding. Shudder.
(My family reminded me the other day that this lap siding was not our first choice. It was a design change mid-way. I think we were going to put more board-and-batten on, but I am glad we changed that to a more interesting mix. )
So much tedious work to install, caulk, paint... and just when you think you are done you have to get out the ladder and do more...
