I’m writing this post from the future and back-dating it, because I realized that we had never shown a picture of the back after tearing it open and re-siding it. Here’s how it looks with the new cedar shingles. We did not have enough of the original lap siding to go around, so we opted to make the back unique and go with cedar shingles. It doesn’t look as jarring as if we had done it on the side of the kitchen, where it would have contrasted with the dining room wall. We always like shingle-clad bungalows, so it looks pretty good back here. If you want to jump ahead, we did eventually start painting it.
