House in Anglemont, B.C.
Nice score pugsy...and Merry Christmas.
This finished house is GORGEOUS! I looked through the 85 pages, ending looking at every 5 pages or so to get to the end. What a project!Stone installed on exposed foundation.

I started looking at the first several pages and thought you were redoing the little house. I wondered why since you seem to have this lovely vintage house in your profile pic.. I thought it must be a 2nd house, but it didn't seem so from the text. After a couple of dozen pages it dawned on me. Wow! It really, really does look like a solid old vintage house. I love the brick! I also like how it sits slanted on the lot, too.
I suggest you put some finished house pics at the end of this thread, and put the car work pics in another thread. 85 pages is a lot to go through, and some will want to skip to the end to see the finished project.
It's a very impressive "done" - really thoroughly done, trims and all, which is not what always happens to all of us DIYers.
I hope your friend can meet your standards for the deck skirting work!
What color for the deck floor boards?
Have you seen Hollandlac Brilliant paint? It's expensive but is wearing SO MUCH better than Ben Moore. It makes for a lovely floor. We put it on our entry portico floor (and the white walls around it), and I love it. We put a rug down the middle because it's quite slippery when wet. I love that it always looks wet!
Ours is like this color in this one I found on the net, just slightly paler, and slightly bluer.
(I hope your friend can live up to your standards for the skirting!)
Re: the slant - it looks that way from some of the pics where you can just barely see the road edge from where you took the picture. Like in your profile pic of it here. It looks like it's mostly the corner and the side facing the road (which you said was close-ish), which makes the bulk of the house not face it, ans also recede from the road, offering an extra private end of the front porch, too. That is, if I saw it right.
I would have chairs on the more private end and a swinging bench or glider, which the kids will enjoy, on the end closer to the road.
The porch does make your house look really nice.Grey floor boards, similar to the picture.
Never heard of that paint brand before. Just googled. The nearest dealer is over an hour away....really sucks up here to buy anything.
The porch is basically to only make the house look nice. Too noisy for sitting. The deck out back is quieter.
Not another piece of stick to cut for this dang house.
Just some paint and stain and that's it.
Uh-oh............now what am I gonna do........
Well, you buy another place on spec and fix it up . . .
As I recall, you have an El Camino and fishing to perfect. You'll think of something - I get the sense that you don't 'veg' well.
