Any suggestions as to how to repair/paint/replace close exterior walls?

The home of a friend is a frame, circa 1880, two storey home that most closely resembles a Princess Anne.  The lot lines are very close and the distance between his house and that of his neighbor is ten inches.  It appears that the siding on the neighbor's home was once replaced and from the details it appears that this was done from inside the house - not an easy option for my friend as this wall is his kitchen and would require removing the cabinets, counter-top, etc.  A possibility is joining the two homes and insulating the space but this creates its own set of potential problems. Does anyone know a procedure by which these, once common, adjacent walls can be repaired/maintained?

a really skinny workman?

He has a son born in December.  However, he lives in too populated an area to skirt the Child Labor Board spies

I was gonna say a skinny guy, but then I thought, no, but now it seems okay.
