Been doing farm work & house has been ignored until today. Prepped the front porch yesterday for new paint on the concrete & just finished painting a few minutes ago. The rest of the day I'll be painting Bush Hog D4-10 garden tractor parts!:thumbs:
66 degrees & climbing! Oh, and I spray bombed the wrought iron yesterday.

First off Daniel your house project is looking good! Second, send any of that heat you have extra up this way. It's 35 degrees and a cold rain here today and threats of snow this week.

Looks good. Your place is really nice.
Not that warm here, I think we have topped out at 55F. I wont complain.... It could be worse. Supposed to be warmer tomorrow. Not that it matters, I have been working on my master bath the last few weeks. I hope to finish it up in the next few days.

Started back on the house a bit today. Working at ground level on the back porch. Got quite a bit done, but too much mess for taking a pic today. Once some of the mess is picked up, I'll post some pics.

Edited to add a couple pics after side was stripped. I stripped the area on right under the windows after these pics were taken, and that right side area is now under new siding.

High 60's today Larry. Gonna be nice tomorrow too, but may haul manure till time to go pick up my Bush Hog snow blower at the Machinery Show.
The only problem with making upgrades, is that things you didn't notice look so crappy once some new stuff is next to it. The old back storm door looks even rougher now. Oh well....this door will have to do for a while.
Alan, sounds like you're feeling guilty, so get out the tools & get busy! LOL

Same white vinyl as the rest of the house, earlier in this thread. The main intent was stopping the drafts, which the plastic sheet, plus the foam panels do a VERY good job. The house is already much more comfortable, and seen much less propane usage.

Insulation and draft barriers are always an excellent thing, Daniel...hard to argue with something that saves you money and makes you comfortable.
