Our siding got finished up yesterday. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. For any one who is wondering my installer Eric Davis (http://www.ericdavisconstruction.com/) used a ring shank nails and I would guess they were about 2 inches long to attach the siding.
Our drywall should finally be finished by tomorrow so we will be spending the weekend painting. Weather has been terrible so we have not been able to work on the stone because of the temperatures but hopefully we can finish that up next week.
