Using Cedar siding for a pictorial mural


I'm a handyman carpenter and over the years I have done a lot of restoration work on houses and occasionally furniture. I've done a little bit of everything. That includes siding in it's various forms. But until tackling 'the giant', they've always been straight jobs.
This is my own house, and I took my time to build the giant. I started in the fall of 2011 and any I'd add to it time I had free and it was

This is the before picture. The door you see at the top of the stairs is actually a window that opens at the top works like a dutch door, with the bottom permanently fastened. The space to the right awaits my next design this fall.

    Hi Andre, I would imagine in theory, that a contractor familiar with cedar shingling, could do something. Not sure how they would know to price it, unless they've done it before. For that matter, I wouldn't know what to charge, but then again, I only do it for my own amusement. Best of luck. Let me know if you figure something out.
