Cider House, Part 5

Time for some siding!!! First, Michael and Virginia cannibalized the old bead board flooring from the other side of the upper floor.

Second, now that the plywood has been removed, Michael used the “commander” to pound on the outside of the repaired sill to give it a final nudge into place

Next, Michael power washed the floor boards to make them beautiful even though they are over a hundred years old.

Then, he frame out some windows, which were found for free, and made the cider house beautiful.


From the inside, the two upper level, floorless rooms look like this.

There is one last job to perform on the lower level, a matter of belt and suspenders.
