Looking at the house as the neighbors see it.

Front Windows
Front Windows

This is the music studio window. All the windows of the second story are Anderson 200 series wood windows that are vinyl clad on the outside. (9/22/04)

The three front windows of the house. (9/22/04)

The Back Windows
The Back Windows

The three windows along the back of the house. (9/22/04)

The Side Window
The Side Window

This is where the side window will go. This window was back-ordered, so it couldn't go in with the rest of them. (9/22/04)

From the North

This is a view of the house from the north side. (9/22/04)

From the South
From the South

The house really sticks out when driving down the street. Besides being taller then the neighbor's house, the pitch of the roof is steeper. It wasn't our intention to stick out like this, but the neighbors don't seem to mind. (9/22/04)

The View
The View

This is the view out from the center window. The trees screen the view, but there is still quite a bit of light filtering through. (9/26/04)

Another View

Here is a view of the driveway from the same window. Johanne wanted to be able to see students walking up while she was teaching, but it may be difficult except during the winter. (9/26/04)

The Outside at Night
The Outside at Night

Here is a view of the house at night. This is the week before Halloween. I put a strobe light up there which gave a spooky appearance since it flashed across the entire second floor across just the studs.. (10/26/04)

Wind Damage
Wind Damage

The Tyvek house wrap is used to cut down on wind blowing through the house without trapping moisture. It took some damage during a windy storm. It also shows the sides that were left open during the rough plumbing so I could get to the pipes from the side. (12/8/04)

Damage Repaired
Damage Repaired

This photo shows the same side after the damage was repaired and the sides closed. (12/8/04)

The Other Side
The Other Side

The Tyvek on this side of the house was also damaged in the storm, but it was too dark to get a good picture of the damage. This photo shows the side after repairs. (12/8/04)

Siding
Siding

The siding is getting installed on the coldest day of the year. This caused problems with the aluminum trim in the spring. As the weather warmed up, the trim started to buckle. (1/16/05)

Pile of Old Siding
Pile of Old Siding

The siding originally shipped to the house and put up on one side of the house was the wrong color. The siding had to be ripped down and the correct siding put up. The blue tarp is covering the old siding that had to be thrown away. (1/16/05)

Protecting the Shingles
Protecting the Shingles

The siders needed to nail 2x4s to the roof, so they lifed the shingles to prevent leaks. (1/16/05)

Primed Columns
Primed Columns

I primed the wood columns with an oil-based primer after filling in voids with Spackle. The north side of the column on the end of the porch gets quite a beating from the weather which requires frequent scarping and re-painting. (5/31/05)

Painted Columns
Painted Columns

I painted the columns to match the trim on the house. (5/31/05)
