more siding and framing
The siding on the rear of the existing house had to be replaced because of old kitchen vents and damage where the addition was tied into the house.
The kitchen is getting framed in where the new landing and entryway is going. Can't tell if they were able to keep the same level as the existing back door entry or whether they had to go down one more step to provide proper headroom.
It is interesting but probably too subtle to notice the difference in the two bare walls in the following photo. The right most wall in which the door hangs, was from the original build. There is a larger gap between the cedar sheath and there are square head nails. The left bare wall is part of the bump out done in the '30s and the sheathing has smaller gaps and round head nails.
