It will just be left as is. To be clear the exposed face was NOT planed which is why it has it's 80 year old weathered patina. The planing on the back was simply to make it workable so it could be installed with some ease although admittedly it was a laborious process compared to standard lap siding. If you are thinking of doing something like this please use a siding Contractor that knows what they are doing and loves their work.

Where is the reclaimed wood from?

It's white oak that is approximately 80 years old. It was re-claimed from a barn a Mennonite family was dismantling in Southern Ontario, Canada. We then re-planed the 3 unexposed sides for the horizontal siding and re-planed all of the sides for the vertical siding. The whole process was facilitated by The Wood Source here in Ottawa.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shean used century-old reclaimed white oak from southwestern Ontario, as well as prefinished aluminum in some areas. "Studies show that this wood will lose around a quarter of an inch in thickness every 100 years, so even though it's 100 years old now, it has many years to go before it needs to be replaced," he says. The oak came from a local store, The Wood Source.
