Renovation Day...I lost count...

The yard is full of debris again, a toilet in the front drive is a first...with yet another trip to Lowe's...and a little more money out the door...we came home with yet another load of supplies to make repairs to the shack. Total demo was not in the plans until we found an un-foreseen plumbing issue that couldn't wait to be taken care of until next hey we got a new bathroom out of it! :-)

We really tried to not hit the budget to hard since we were not planning to renovate the bathroom until next year so we managed to make a few budget conscious choices and here they are...
An outdoor siding that is designed to look like cedar lap siding. Made from a cement & paper mix. We didn't use it as lap but we butted the edges and it looks like a complete wood wall....AWESOME look! Best of all the boards come in 12' lengths and they were only $4.50 per board, much cheaper than wood! It cuts easy with a circular saw and we installed it with our small air power nailer with finishing nails, gave it a quick coat of paint and we were done. It could have also had a whitewash technique done on it if that was the look you were going for.

Sadie is wondering when this is going to be over with.....I wish I knew girl!

Stay tuned for the finished product!
