Have you heard a woodpecker try going at the steel yet? One of the barns at my parents house is a mixture of vertical corrugated steel and every once in a while you can hear a woodpecker try drilling into the steel by mistake. It reverberates so loudly that it reminds me of those old Woody Woodpecker cartoons where he his beak gets all bent up after trying to do the same thing.
Not yet, they were more prevalent on the south side where the wood was beat on by the sun and nice and warm. I'll put a picture up here tonight of my patchwork sidiing over there. That will be what I probably do next this fall.

As you can see, no snow jack yet either. I need to do that this year as 3 foot mounds of snow in front of the garage door the last couple years were a PITA! You doing the adhesive or screw down?
