"When that happens, water goes uphill and overwhelms your [drainage] systems and can cause [significant] damage. "For me, that's the first thing I'm thinking about when I'm looking at a building—how that thing is draining [and] where the water is going," he adds. "You're limited.

We built 3D mod- els, [and] we came up with several iterations of what the siding scheme would look like," Keever says. "He's an older guy, so that was the whole goal of the project—low maintenance." To make matters even more difficult, the home had been built on a steep lot, rendering access to the jobsite relatively dangerous. "One side of that house is about 50 feet off the ground," Keever ex- plains. "We had to set up ropes for people to climb up—like what you see on the Machu Picchu trail."
