siding in narrow space

I have a semi detached row-house that needs the siding repaired (cedar boards). One side is attached (no worries there), front and rear are a cake, but on one side I have a neighboring house that is 18 inches away (brick wall that's probably built a few years after my house).
The space runs the entire depth of the house (30'), and it's three stories high. There are a few boards that are broken and missing. I don't even know how and where to start.
Any of you guys had to deal with this before?

I've had other guys tell me anything from removing the entire barnboard and the siding from the inside, then working my way up from the inside; to covering the space with a roof (bridging the two buildings) to make the space "interior" and les prone to damage from rain, snow etc.
