We prefer to provide all of our reclaimed barn board with a ship lap profile, all milled to the same thickness of 5/8" and of course, it must be kiln dired for interior use. We offer widths of 3"-6" or 4"-8" in a random mix. The boards fit together beautifully, making the installation a breeze! We ship our barn board all over the United States so please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions: www.creativefloorsvail.com or info@creativefloorsvail.com I hope this helps!

The wood was not sourced through the above company. It is from a fallen barn near the site. The back wall was painted black before the installation and the edges of the wood were left as is and blind nailed to the wall, much like how a wood floor is installed.

I have a couple of cedar fence panels that I took down for construction and don't plan to put back up again, weathered but otherwise in good shape - would the wood be suitable for such a project?

I would simply google reclaimed wood or salvaged wood to find a nearby supplier - you may have to hit the country or perhaps PA. I just heard about a place in Philly from an architect called Provenance that is great about sourcing this kind of thing:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Aren't these weathered gray boards beautiful? I picture that they had a former life as siding on a barn.
Margaret Everton added this to Industrial Chic Hearths
I love how Houzz participant Favero added this to his ideabook and noted that what he liked about it was simply "the whole thing." This whole space IS amazing in its simplified entirety—and that raised fire box adds the perfect touch. More: Browse hundreds of fireplace designs.
Wood plank is a pretty big design element when it comes to a lake house. Because design is about making things your own, I love the idea of wood plank installed on walls — mixing it up horizontally and vertically. Stick with a gray tone to keep the natural light abundant; super dark or heavy stains can instantly make the space darker. Also play with art to bring nautical touches inside. In this photo, a swimmer is depicted in the painting above the fireplace. That one touch goes a long way.
Shawn Gauthier added this to The Joy of Spring: Bring the Outside Inside
Brick fireplaces are a classic, but the gray coloring of this reclaimed wood, particularly against white walls, creates a cool, crisp vibe.
This beautiful fireplace wall stands up to the scale of the soaring ceiling, making it possible to use a small fireplace. The wood was originally in a barn in Texas. "The house was designed to be a part of the landscape. This was accomplished by how the house sits in the site, the placement of windows and the position of walls for views," says Pam Lamaster-Millet, the project's architect. "We felt the reclaimed wood was appropriate for the main focal point of the living space, as an extension of the wooded site into the house, and a nod to the agricultural area of Algoma."
Lisa Frederick added this to Great Material: Gray Wood for Winter
The towering gray-wood wall, which follows the line of the cathedral ceiling, gives strong presence to this living area.
Textures and materials also relate to the greater context. The wood surrounding the small electric fireplace is from a barn in Texas. "We felt the reclaimed wood was appropriate for the main focal point of the living space, as an extension of the wooded site into the house, and a nod to the agricultural area of Algoma," Lamaster-Millett says.
Natalie Myers added this to How to Update Cozy Wood Paneling
Using weathered or reclaimed wood offers texture and a timeworn gray patina. If you are favoring grays and whites at home and would like a way to bring in a feeling of the outdoors, this is a great way to do so. The wood paneling around the fireplace feels so right.
4. Add warmth with weathered wood. Weathered wood has a warm, homey feel that works beautifully in a pale interior. This cladding emphasizes the height of the space and creates a chimney breast effect for the modern fire.

Another great reclaimed wood fireplace. We could also use this grey, light grey color on the chimney. Milled wood, untreated but kilned will look really good.
