The cedar shingles have been fastened into place on ARK160A's front exterior wall. Just needs to be stained and the trim around the door and window painted. Why cedar? As a siding, cedar is versatile. Although we have chosen to stain to enhance the natural wood grain, one could just as easily paint it any color. Cedar is naturally resistant to moisture and decay, as well as swelling and warping, making it very durable. Even capable of withstanding hurricane force winds.
It was chilly today and the issue of heating and exactly how well the propane heater and diesel heater work was the topic of discussion. So tonight we bought a 20lb tank of propane along with some other odds and ends for the gas line and barring unforeseen delays the Studio space will be heated by this time tomorrow. With the exterior of ARK160A finally approaching completion the next thing on our to-do list is the installation of the casement window into the port wall. Stay tuned!
