Thx guys...

I got the scaffold plank re installed on the west elevation and put the tyvek and installed the last window.
I've been waiting on these PVC pre-made corners to come in and wouldn't you know one of them was damaged during shipment.
I installed the one on the west elevation and started running the siding last night. With a little luck I should be able to get the other aluminum trim installed over the w/e.
Still waiting for the vertical board and batten siding I ordered for the front to come in... rant runaway

Although it is just a garage most construction practices are the same as if this were a house on the exterior.
Taxman came around today...Its not even finished and he was looking to access a value for tax purposes... rant
I did get the siding on the west elevation finished as high as I could reach last night and built up the scaffold to finish up the balance.
A good rest of the week and maybe by Sunday I can have 3 of the 4 elevations finished.
Vertical board and batten siding for the front is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow.
I still need to order the brick for the front elevation...factory is in Texas so depending on where this may be an issue... shruggy

Not from your parts, so I'm asking

The door on the east elevation was set up for a RH in swing. All doors are 3/0 6/8. The two doors on the back are out swing. One LH reverse (basement) and one RH reverse. Both will receive lock guards and basement hardware will be a panic bar with internal frame mounted latch. East door was set up as an in swing so a screen-glass door could be mounted in the future...

All of the exterior sheating...tyvek...siding...soffit and fascia on the west elevation is now complete... boogie
No more high work... runaway
I removed the scaffold at the west and set up a platform out front and began running the soffit and fascia there.
The snow rails came in for the roof so I'm going to install those as well... up

I finished all of the soffit under the 3' overhang in the front on Monday.
I finished installing the fascia on the front last night.
There are a couple small waves that will hide behind the gutter system as will the attachment pin nails... whistling

Managed to get started on the PVC trim around the garage doors and the vertical siding.
The siding is from a company called Celect. It's made from a PVC type plastic...seems like a really nice deal since you're not supposed to ever have to paint it.
I installed 1" Styrofoam insulation between the siding at the exterior sheathing.
I mocked up the light fixture but may opt for a slightly bigger one instead...

So far I really like it although you need to have a very level substrate or it shows...
The small area below it will get brick at a later time...

I completed all of the trim around the garage doors and all of the siding at the front. Traded up to a larger light fixture and installed the small LED motion lights under the overhang.
I still need to install the snow rails and the gutter front and back.

Looks nice! bow Do yourself a favor, and get someone to do seamless gutters for you. They will be done in an hour! Spring for the bigger gutters while you're at it, if it doesn't hurt the budget too bad.

The company I purchased the exterior products from (roofing-siding-soffit) is a supplier of nearly everything for the exterior.
They have a truck mounted unit and will set up on site and run-off gutter to your desired lengths...Then they sell all of the hidden hardware for the installation. Even a leaf screen system if desired... work
Using them will allow me to bypass any labor from a subcontractor.
I figure if I can do the groundwork...the roof and all other encompassed framing and coordination maybe I can handle hanging the gutters too... shruggy biggrin

ON a "this old house" episode they claimed the larger "rounded" bottom gutters worked better for drainage and cleaning....

I installed the snow rail on the front elevation Monday night and am having the one piece gutter for the front and back delivered tomorrow. I opted for the larger gutter rather than the smaller one. That should take care of everything on the front elevation that I need the scaffolding for... up
In the meantime I figured I might as well complete the porch decking and handrails. Need to pick-up a few more pickets and that's one more project completed... runaway

Your garage is looking great and you have certainly put in a lot of work, well done.

Thx...
I installed the gutter at the front elevation on Saturday morning. This is a much better system than what I had installed many years ago.
I mocked up 3 "story pole" posts at the correct elevations and attached them to the scaffolding. Two of us lifted it up and sat it on the posts easy peasy.
I was able to get 1" of fall from right to left without it being terribly noticeable. I only mocked up the downspout as I needed to move it out some in case it rains before I get everything connected together.
It wasn't up 10 minutes before the wife came outside and complained about seeing the attachment brackets... runaway
Guess I'll be installing the leaf guard after all... rant
