Raining Again
It was raining again when we arrived for this trip.  At least we didn’t get stuck this time.

LittleHouse – More Exterior Trim

Exterior Trim
We made it back up over Labor Day. It was raining again when we arrived, so the first day was pretty much shot for working. We played with the Grandkids, instead.

The sun came out the next day, and we started the trim on the West side of the house.
We have two verticle pieces, and one horizontile piece over the butt joint where the two pieces of siding adjoin from the bottom and top.

For that joint, we looked for Z-channel to slip in between them for weatherproofing. The only stuff we found was for thicker siding, and wouldn’t fit right for ours. So we used 30 year sealant at that joint, which is pretty good stuff… We had to take some off around the French Doors when we were re-doing the flashing, and it was stuck very well.

Anyway, we covered that joint with a horizontile trim piece, more for looks than anything. The top of this trim piece was also sealed with the silicone sealant. Hope it holds up over the years… We’ll just have to watch it.
