greenhouse (siding and trim)

staal has been working on the outside of the greenhouse---putting up siding and trim to get everything sealed and looking spiffy.

here are a couple of shots taken before the siding and trim went up...




staal has put up T-111 siding (he pre-painted it the color of the house) below all of the glazing, around the doors, and at the corners...




caulk and z-bar will keep rain from getting behind the siding.


he cut pieces of redwood to trim around the glazing with channels on the back side of each piece to fit over the slightly raised sections of framing that run between the glass panels---this will allow the outer edges of the back side of each piece of trim to sit flush against the glazing.






the result is a well-sealed and beautiful exterior...
