Applying Cedar Wall Shingles

“But he who dares not grasp the thorn

Should never crave the rose.”

-Anne Bronte, poet and novelist, 1820 – 1849

But the idea of applying small pieces of wood over an entire building can seem more daunting than it is. The truth is, siding with cedar shingles is easier than you think as long as you tackle the job properly. In fact, get into the right kind of Zen mindset and the work is quite enjoyable. The smell of fresh cedar is great, too.
