1x6 clear pine siding.

I put 2 coats of primer/paint on all the cut edges prior to install.

Slow work when the paint wont dry and you have to break out the torpedo.

edit: I was bricking that step when a storm hit and the power went out. I got that much done with the cell phone light until it lost power. I need to finish it at some point. drying siding.png
 
Main front porch under construction. I cheated and didn't prime and paint all 6 sides of the siding boards that won't get weather. front porch 2.png front porch.png

Not sure on the heater. It will warm you up though.

As far as the skill go, caulk and paint can make just about anything look good. I appreciate it.
 
Kick out flashing where the siding meets the shoulder of the chimney. You can't tell from the angle but there is a 3/8" gap between the end of the siding board and the flashing. Everything in the pic will be white when final painted.
I ran out of white polyurethane and had to use tan and the tan flashing was made from scrap .

The slot for the kickout flashing has 2 coats of primer/paint in it and will be caulked, but it should never see any water anyway. flashing.png
