We started this job by installing white aluminum soffit on all eaves, as well as on part of the front of the home (vertically) as a grooved accent trim.  Finally, the new Dutchlap vinyl siding installation was completed over the old wood siding to spare unnecessary debris and cost.  This particular color (barn red) was a special order through Menards.  There is a 25% restocking fee for any returned special order siding, so we were particularly careful in our measurements.  The homeowner was left with just a few extra pieces of siding to store for future use.
