Now that I have figured out how to fix my oversight, I can keep going on a bit more trim. On the bank of 3 windows I measured and cut the top piece and installed it with no problems other than me having to use a ladder and, of course, the sound of things falling off the walls in the shop as I hammered.
I then took the pieces for between the windows and applied some silicone to the edge.
I slid that up between the window to the top piece of trim and nailed it in place. Then installed the bottom trim, again with a bit of silicone where the trim meets.
With the top of the trim tucked that close to the eave, I don't think I will need a drip edge in there. The frieze board will take up the space.
Then it was time to do the back window. It was a bit easier not having to contend with the width and spaces of multiple windows. So, on went a board on each side, top and bottom.
At this point I just could not help myself. Despite still being tacky from the second coat of stain I put on earlier in the morning, I put up the medallions in the corners and got the whole works caulked and done. That means I can take the blue tape off the screen, which I am using as an indicator of completeness. I think it looks fantastic!
I put a few more sheets of siding up today too, and now I need the drip edge for over this window to continue. So a bit of progress, but it really makes a difference in looks.
Until next time...
Thanks for dropping by!
