Two weekends ago the installation of the soffit was definitely completed, and most of the siding. Yet to be finished on the siding is the basement wall facing the lake... and the last course just below the soffit under the gazebo.
Finishing this last bit of siding can and will wait until more pressing tasks of completing the inside are completed.
The only this not yet 'finished' in this view of the Cottage is the posts and beams of the porch. The posts will eventually be clad in 6"x6" vinyl post cladding and the beams will likely be covered with aluminum flashing. Both will be white - to keep with the blue/white colour scheme.
I am curious how this post clading material works and will be sure to let you know how it works.
