New Siding Going on the Tower

Beginning yesterday and continuing today the new siding is being installed on the tower. The new siding is made of mahogany and designed with a ship-lap detail so that the wood will fit together tightly even with swelling and shrinking. The siding was treated with a wood preservative, primed, and single-coat painted before going on the tower. The pictures show the siding going into place around one of the ox-eye windows, the ship-lap detail, and a side almost completed.
