Stage One: I have to do what?

Good thing I have so many bedrooms.
Apparently my aluminum siding is some real vintage stuff. Like some of the first siding ever made in the late 40s after WW2. Which means the first slacker to own this place might have been the original owner, who couldn't be bothered to paint it a mere 20 years after it was built. It also means it's super thick and doesn't have mounting strips/clips/nonsense so it's really hard to re-attach. The guys working on the house had never seen it before and were concerned about messing it up when they went to put it back on. After I stopped laughing, I told them that after someone hits your house with a car, you don't really worry about dents in the siding anymore. Also, it's already so fantastic looking, dents could only enhance the appeal. Ahem.
|The house is looking really great right now.|
|Wood siding seems to be in excellent condition, so my dreams of |
ripping off the aluminum siding aren't so farfetched afterall.
|Snuck in through the radiator pipe hole.|
|No wonder the tub was always so cold, aka this closet is now a dust bin.|
|Well well well. Air leakage anyone? No wonder why this was such a good place to store wine.|
|Mid heating system replacement.|
|SO PRETTY. AND SHINY. AND LESS SPACE HOGGING.|
