Cutting Ties

This past weekend was spent fixing some rot on the bay on the front of the house.  I removed all the trim and two sections of the sheathing, applied new sheathing and house wrap and let it set.  And we have had a bit of rain, the weather change really messed with my sinuses.  Tonight after measuring for replacement trim on the bay I started a fire and cut all the wood I had available into ties.  I think I have 30 feet, maybe 40 or by luck 50 feet of ties cut to length.  Much of it is 2x4 and 2x6 so I need to rip them to width.

I plan to use plastic lumber for the bay.  I am uncertain if I should mimic what was there or modify it slightly.
