    My Renovation project - getting closer.

    Some of you may remember some of these pictures. I started this project about a month before Brett Favre came to the Jets. I am getting closer to completing it. I still want to do a stone face on the brick and I need to let the new cedar age a little on the screen porch addition before I treat it so it will match but I ...am...closer. Here is some before and after shots.

    Very nice!!!

    Where is that? Reminds me of home (upstate NY)... Cedar looks great! Did you add on I'm assuming? New roof? I think it will take you a while for the new cedar to "catch up"... I built a little cedar fence in phases, and it took almost 6 months before it all matched... and even then I did semi-transparent oil stain, but the natural look is the best

    Good luck, looks super!

    Well it is as far south in Alabama as you can get. 40 miles more and your in the Gulf of Mexico. I treated the rest of the house with Hydraulic fluid, it came out great and the carpenter bees hate it. I think I will let the new cedar age for a year or so before I do the same to it. We put a metal roof on and made a screen porch of the deck. It was our idea but I did not do the work...no talent for that stuff...I is a cop.

    Spray it.

    Use a spray gun with an air compressor, but clean the windows pretty soon after doing it or you will have a hell of a time getting them clean.
