comment Questions about DIY on cedar siding and maybe new windows
Good call on the insulation, I had completely forgot about. I'm not sure if there's any currently, so I'll have to add for that. And I've seen the price of the house wrap, I got a 300$ line item for that -- it's something around ~170 for the wrap alone.

comment Questions about DIY on cedar siding and maybe new windows
when I said I really don't like doing things twice, I meant doing it half-way/thrown together and having to redo everything a year or two later. Learning curve doesn't bother me, but I like to do them right, preferably overkill, and never have to worry about it again. Or at least for 30+ years or so :-)

comment Is there any way I can reclaim this space and still safely support the front steps?
I know the shelf in the room you see above is just under 5' ... I just measured the entry way, and its around 4' 9 from the inside (so its about 1:1). Wonder if its possible the two pegs outside for the deck also hold up that entry way

Last one. The set of steps on the other side of that wall ends where the slope meets that shelf. It continues for another 5' for an entry, kind of like a balcony, only 4 feet off the ground.

that first picture is about the amount of space I'm dealing with. It's maybe 5 feet wide in there and that shelf takes up about half the room ... and there's a door behind me. Moving back would give me 3-6", maybe.
