The Cross House

  1. Barb Sanford is right baby steps and incremental progress must be so satisfying! The south side was so decimated & making such a difference at a good pace, considering each area needs so-o much attention and detail work…

  2. So satisfying! You can imagine how long it must have been to shingle such a huge house when it was built. Building a new big house? Let’s use the smaller components available to make it super long and tedious: bricks/shingles. ah ah, I always admire the patience of the builders of the older times and find this so irrational 🙂

    One question: Didn’t you prime these shingles before painting them? Were they made of already prepped/treated wood?

  3. Looks great, but I cannot help but wander what this improvement looks like from the ground looking up. Ross????

  4. If that was me doing the painting… I would have had to start at the VERY TIP TOP, meaning the curved area first in case (who am I kidding, for when) I dripped some on the new shingles I didn’t have to touch up. Just admitting, right?
