was thinking of having some red cedar trees rough cut for 3/4 inch boards for paneling a 6' by 8' back porch in a 100 year old small house. This back porch is outside back door entrance and stairwell to basement. Another doorway into the house
I wanted to buy some old barn boards already dry to do this but they are hard to find and expensive at best.
How long would they need to dry before installing?? How is best way to 'cure' this type wood?? would this wood 'stink' up the whole house??
Pluses would be its durable and hard to beat to death. beats the thin cheap drywall on there now that is peeling and hole filled. Plenty of scrub trees to have for the sawing. it would have a 'rustic' look!!
help me with the minuses ??
thanks for your thoughts -d-
