I managed to get a nice peel on the stripwood for the
door and window framing/trim.....



Started framing out the windows on the front wall.

Looking good, Karl. I also get mixed results sometimes when peeling.

Thanks indeed Frederic, I wouldnt have quite gone as far as perfect myself, however, that is a compliment I will gladly accept from you.

Thanks also Chuck. I'm still really leaning the technique, and figuring out the nuances. Maybe one day I will have enough focus to just pick out and use the best pieces for a structure, and also use them more appropriately placed.

I think I would only end up using 1 in 10 boards though..... if I were to be as selective as I need to be for a good result.

I suspect I would only be able keep my attention high enough and long enough to do one wall.

Time for the windows on this one though for now.

Superb ! The contrast in weathering above and below the staircase line is great.

I think I'll change out this window header... it blends in too much and I'd like it to be more 'distinctive'.... even though it will be under the awning and barely seen. It will be a quick swap out for my own peace of mind.

I was also going to swap out the two boards in the middle of the wall due to the sloping joint between them, however this will be covered by the hotel sign so I'm gonna let that slide.



Glad I got that off my chest...

Thanks Delbert...

I added in the door and window frames for the second wall this morning and then the windows.



Time for a quick test fit to check how things are shaping up...

Shaping up nicely YM. Now it's time to get the boys going with the disc sanders and get that siding taken down to bare wood!

Well done Karl, the walls look great. Is that strip wood you're using for the corner trim...?
