Repairing exterior cladding

Exterior cladding on southern wall has gone in terrible shape:

The wind and snow hits straight on to it.
Not to mention the sun.
Closer look tells the whole truth:

So we headed to buy supplies.
boards and paint:

We bought boards from Puumesta,
where is also possible to loan trailer for free.
Whole lot easier than empty own :-D.

My role was just hang around
and admire the solution of warning tape
(which we didn't had):

Paint we got from RTV-yhtymä,
where was going on funny campaign:
each paint can you bought,
you get two glasses:

We bought 2 cans,
so my daughter got four new glasses.

My hubby cut boards:

He made bevel to the lower edge:

Those were done,
so raining water wouldn't harm so badly in future.

Wall was ripped in parts, 
just in case of rain:

There wasn't any unpleasant surprises.
Were glad of that!

And new boards was added right away:

Then he painted it:

And let it dry,
before next layer.
It finally stayed unfinished over two weeks,
because of rain:

But now it is finished and next project can be start.
New drain:

He said, it can be done in fall...
