PLEASE RECYCLE-Stake body truck with siding
strapped down to take to recycle. We recycle our scrap metal lath and pallets. I also pull out metal and pallets from dumpsters and trash piles to recycle. If a million other contractors did this, it would make a big difference on our planet.
Siding off, traditional stucco on

Old wood clapboard siding, under the aluminum, is covered with tarpaper and metal lath. We are almost done with this project. I'm saving the details for the next update. Please check back.
