What kind of siding did you use.

August 7, 2017
We're building a new 'old' farmhouse and I love the look of that siding, is it wood? Is it all new or is some new and some restored? Can you buy it directly from a manufacturer or was it custom? Partner wants HardiePlank but I don't think you can get that look in it.

    That is good old fashion painted cedar clapboards 4" to the weather! Replaced wet rot with new wood and painted. Nothing beats the vintage look and feel of wood. If the wood is good quality and well protected it will last for many years. Did a project in Winchester and the home had the original painted cedar clapboards 8" to the weather as they say, and the boards were still in great shape. We did a small addition and were able to get the cedar milled up for that project but 4" to the weather should be more available. It was a shame to paint it but you could tell by looking at it that is going to last a long time. Clear heart vertical grain!. Best of luck on your Farmhouse!
