This Old House: Ready to pull the trigger, but can somebody help me from shooting myself in the foot?
Working on a 1911 bungalow, and trying to figure out which fixes come in order to create the fewest problems. Original cedar siding is about shot, and I know that replacement will include fixing a bunch of other spots that have suffered neglect on the exterior. That said, I also have a few windows to replace. Question: windows first, or siding? Or does it not matter at all? And can you add gutters to a bungalow without it looking stupid? Finally, Hardie board? Help! Anyone I ask wants to sell me something.
Received phone call from doctor that in course of 1 yr. checkup, child has elevated (but not immediate risk) lead levels. Advice/next steps? [more inside]
