I've been working on posting the links to the videos correctly. The thumbnails weren't showing up, so I'm reposting them here, in case the wonky YouTube links I used before made you nervous.








I'm not sure that's any better, but I will be posting these correctly in the future. Enjoy!

I'm a little late in updating. I've been working on the siding, and I'll admit - this is NOT my favorite part of the build. The panels are heavy, the dust when cutting sticks to everything, and installing by myself, I'm not able to get the accuracy I was hoping for. That said, it's coming along, and I just have the upper gable ends left to install before I start working on the soffits.

I ended up using boards stacked at the base to "hold" the panels in place while I attached them. I used window shims to level them, and deliberately left a gap between panels, which I'll seal with caulk, to replicate the expansion seams on our house that has actual stucco.



I've been using the Kreg Rip-Cut for long cuts for a while, and it does pretty good on these panels, especially with the Diablo Hardie blade I bought for my circular saw. Unfortunately, the plastic lock mechanism on the Rip-Cut came apart. Fortunately enough, it gave me an excuse to buy a new track saw!





Did I mention this stuff is dusty?! I was using a N95 face mask, but probably would have been safer with a respirator on.



At the end of it all, I'm pretty pleased with the results. It's not perfect, but I can hide imperfections with caulk, paint, and trim.



Next step is to finish out the upper gable ends, then get the materials to do the soffits. I'm looking forward to the exterior being sealed off. The next video will go live later today, and I will post that when it does!

Awesome stuff! I have the same desire to build my own workshop. I'll have to keep this thread, and your videos, close by for if I ever decide to do it. I'll definitely have to wait on the price of materials to go back down to reasonable prices.

The Hardie siding episode is live. Watch how I work with these large, heavy panels, make some mistakes, yet keep the build moving:

I've learned a TON during this process. Feel free to reach out with any questions!

I haven't got a ton done on the tiny workshop lately. Between almost daily rain, and other house priorities, I have only been able to finish up the siding - which I'm certainly pleased about! I don't like working with the Hardie material, though I'm confident it will pay off in the long run.

I shored up the gable ends, which I was dreading, since I'd be working off the ground, and having to be precise with angle cuts. It ended up being a non-issue, and I was able to knock it out over 2 evenings after work.

I took my time with the measuring and marking out the cut lines





The panels require a 1/4 inch gap between the bottom and the flashing, so I used a couple of 6" drill bits to rest the panels on as I nailed them into place



As humid as it's been here in Rockport, any time I cut Hardie, I'm coated with a significant dusting that sticks to my sweat. It's pretty gross. The Diablo Hardie Blade has been a perfect investment for this project. It cuts through the siding like nothing!



I'm glad to have the siding done. Next step is to figure out the soffit. I've got the supplies, and just need to block out all the attachment points under the gable ends and along the sides.



I'll be posting the video soon. I appreciate all of you who are following along here, and subscribing to the YouTube channel!

The gable end siding video is live! It's a little shorter than typical, but gives a good overview on the process. Check it out:


Thanks for following along!
