    1. That is exactly the plan, those furring strips are caulked behind so when I nail through them they are still a water barrier 🙂 Thanks for the comment!

  1. Hi I like your pallet timber cladding but I am pretty sure it will rot soon because there is no overlap so rainwater comes in between and behind the cladding.

  2. that siding looks like SO much work. I can see why you’ve been doing everything else first… haha. I like the finger joint corner detail. Great solution.

    how about eye screws and wire for the trellis? the wire will be less likely to sag. that’s what they use for vine covered site walls…

    1. Thanks again Carrie- that is/was actually the plan for the trellis but the growing season came too fast! I haven’t ordered the cables and parts yet but wanted to get something growing on there to try it out, I liked the twine because I can cut it down and restring it at any point (I used eye-hooks). I don’t like that it sags with the weather changes but it will be awesome if at the end I can take some scissors and cut it down at the end of the season, I feel like that may make it ‘worth’ the sagging, it makes it much more functional! We will see though, I am concerned if it is tough enough to hold up all the weight but time will tell 🙂
