My plan of attack for the downstairs is to work on about a 8 foot section at a time. Uncovering only what I am working on. Asphalt siding almost completely off the front porch, and started replacing siding on the west side. To my surprise, the side door frame was new, and the siding was cut back about an inch away from the frame. So I cut all new pieces butting up to the door. Getting behind the electrical box was a chore to say the least, even though it was loosened from the wall.
