Putting up the siding -Step 8

I feel like it's been forever since I've posted. The warmer the weather gets, the busier we seem to get. One of Dad's side jobs that he does is cleaning pools, ponds, and doing yard work. So since it's warming up, him and I have been cleaning out quite a few ponds. We are soon going to be opening up some pools too.
Not to mention that we have been working hard at putting the siding up on the dairy. We're using cypress wood for siding because 1) we like the way it looks, 2) it's cheaper than metal siding, and 3) it's easy to hammer into, so all of us can help with putting it up. We are putting up two boards with about a 4 inch space between them and then going back and overlapping another board on top. It's going along really well and looking great!
