The HOA is replacing the siding on my building. Scaffolding went up this week. The old EIFS siding is not suitable for Portland weather, and water is leaking into the building.

NW corner of building
Scaffolding going up on the North side facing Irving St.

The project will last most of 2021 in two phases: First the East and North walls, then the West and South walls. Of course, I have a North West corner apartment, so I get to enjoy both phases.

SW corner of building
Scaffolding in the back alley begins on the second floor.

The new siding won’t be in the faux Art Deco style — it will be something more modern looking.
