The front and back roofs and gable are shingled. I still have to do the porch roof but that requires building the porch first. I also repainted the windows and doors with a Glidden shade named Sandy Feet, and I’m much happier with it!

The shingles turned out surprisingly well, considering they’re made from siding strips I just happened to have lying around. The shades range from blue/gray to black to brown.

Next steps will be applying trim to cover up the corners where the siding doesn’t quite meet and in the eaves to cover gaps between the roof and sides of the house, and then building the porch. And then… it’ll be done! (On the outside, anyway.)
