We started working replacing the Exterior Dining Room Wall as well as moving it out 10" so it will now end past the brick. If you look below in the "Finally Pictures" Post you will see the mistake we are trying to correct. We are only doing this here, the rest of the house where this issue exist will have the cantilever to address the problem.

Its crazy ripping a hole this big in the side of the house. I kept imagining if it were a window, how much natural light it would provide!
Trying our best to to button it back up before the end of the night. I am sure our neighbors are not amused at us sawing and nailing at 1am.
All of the new siding on tie fir out is temporary, we just needed something to go up in between now and next spring as we are putting up all new cladding on the entire house then. This particular siding will be replaced with SIL-LEED Fiber Cement Siding. The rest of the house will be done in Hardie Plank Siding. The patchwork quilt of existing siding we currently have up as well as the new siding are just there to last a few seasons. The older siding will however get a coat of paint as I dont think myself or my neighbors can live with looking at the kaleidoscope even that long.
I will get some additional pictures up up soon after we get a new door slab (the one pictured was defective along with the one for the back door) and get the slab painted. The first rain after getting the wall constucted caused the door to leak around the window. Lowes sent an inspector out who determined the door was milled incorrectly, and a new door slab was needed. Lowes then tried to weasel out of being responsible for the door slab being that they didnt install the door.. How the door slab has anything to do with installation (which was dne correctly btw), is a puzzle for me, my father, and the inspector. At the end of the day they decided to order new slabs... So we wait, and hope these are milled correctly..
