The Acorn Cottage {Siding Down}

More progress... Today, the beautiful blue siding started to come down. We were pleasantly surprised to discover the wood that was covered many, many years is in good condition and will not need to be replaced. Of course, it will be painted. Stay tuned.

I understand the use of siding for upkeep purposes, but vinyl siding looks like a trailer to me.

The Siding is Coming Down, y'all!


  1. Ron,
    I will second the motion to remove the vinyl! I know vinyl fans love the easy maintenance and no painting but it has never looked as beautiful in my opinion as real wood. Also some vinyl will fade over the years and if its not installed properly it looks awful. My neighbor put vinyl on her house several years ago and thinks you never have to power wash and clean it. Its got dirt and green mold on it!

  2. Ron how fabulous that you found great wood siding underneath. You are really moving along. So exciting to see this beautiful cottage coming together. Ron I have sent you a little something so please watch for it to arrive around Saturday. Just a little something for you to enjoy while you are re loving this beautiful cottage. Happy Friday and have a great weekend.

  3. Good morning, Ron! What a treasure find and a cost-saver under that siding! Keep those blogs of the progress of the Acorn Cottage coming! Have a great day! xoxo

  4. Well that’s great about finding the wood siding in good shape under the vinyl! Your new home is truly being transformed! Can’t wait to see it all come together. I’m enjoying the watching this all happen!


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
