Looking good, John.

I'm just wondering why the ends of the clapboard wall sections don't line up with the timber beams between each track?

Re the cutting of clapboard (just wondering if it might help - for next time) - I would cut out the middle window first, then the far end of the two outside windows, then about 3/4 the way along the outside windows (leaving a quarter of clapboard remaining). then the last bit.  This should ease the pressure on the remaining piece a bit.  I would cut all the way through against the grain first (I often flip the walls over to finish this) on every cut, and would put tape on the back before I started.

Cheers, Mark.

Looks great, Vince!

Re the small second story addition - I would put a capping of some sort along here.  This is one of those nasty building techniques that causes leaky house/ building.  As the plaster on the cap perishes and cracks the water makes its way in the cracks and down the wall framing where dry rot begins.  It need not be the same as your other capping - paper with a thin fold over both sides painted up to look like metal would work.  The other thing I would suggest for this extension is a scupper and downpipe allowing water to escape onto the roof below.  At the moment if it rained hard you would have a nice little swimming pool.

Really enjoying your in depth thread!  Cheers, Mark.
