Cement wall is up!
« on: October 27, 2011, 02:01:43 PM »
We installed Champion Cedar T-111 as the siding on our new house in 1978.  The builders placed the siding on flat aluminum drip-edge flashing. By 2011, the bottom edge of the cedar plywood had rotted.  I and my Man Cave cronies replaced the 4 x 8 cedar sheets with 80-lb. Certainteed cement fiber "cedar panels.  This took two weeks, including replacement of redwood corner trim with Trek.  It's over now, and I am rebuilding relations with my wife and fellow churchgoers.  I will send a picture when it is all painted.  Tomorrow night, we hold a Man Cave dinner - Kostritzer Beer, shrimp, beef stew, 3 wines vinted by one of the Man Cave members, and pumpkin pie baked by another Man Cave member.

Now we'll all want to attend one of your "man cave" meetings!
