Now that the south side overhang is up, I was able to paper the
gable end. What a relief to keep the weather off those SIP panels!
I'd like to paper all the sides first before siding, but the rain, sun
and wind will gang up on the tar paper and ruin it-- so it's a section at
a time. South gable comes first, and it will be covered with half-round
(fish-scale) Hardishingle. These shingles are a pain: the pattern is
punched out of hardiboard which leaves a horrible edge, you
need to trim them to remove the bits that didn't punch off cleanly,
and finally wire-brush all the punched edges to clean off the swarf.
