I spent this past weekend with my brothers and a couple of friends removing and installing siding on the west side of my home. Thinking back to the hail storm that we had in March, it seemed like such a daunting task to find matching siding, line up the help and get the work completed. Honestly, it only took us about five hours total from start to finish, and everybody had a lot of fun doing the work! There were some points during the day that we had a few more bosses on the job site than construction workers, but that comes with any major project. At the end of day, we were all able to stand back and say that we had a part in getting the job done. One of the best things about owning a home is that you can take pride in the work that goes into the property. Being able to come home at the end of the day and enjoy a comfortable place to hang your hat is a feeling that can only be experienced rather than expressed in words. I am a proud homeowner and, if you don't already, I hope that you can all share in that feeling someday!
