To begin, mark all of your stud locations. Next, mark all the window edges so you can increase the trim. Proceed to measure to determine how long the first trim piece should be. Use a siding nailer to hold the trim piece in position.
Begin working on the trim piece around the outlet. Start by removing the outlet cover and using it as a guide for the trim.

After that, use a jigsaw to mark all around the trim, so you know where to cut, then screw the trim in place.
Once you’re done, start working on the star strip. The star strip ensures that the angle of the first piece of siding is right. You can now add your first piece of lap siding. Continue adding clamps until you reach the top, and you’re good to go!.
