Antique Reclaimed Brownboard Barn Siding

IMG_0187Reclaimed barn siding has many applications from being re-used as exterior siding, interior paneling and “brownboard” (the backs of siding) for exposed roofs and ceilings. When the backside is used on a ceiling or a wall, it is as if you are in a barn looking at the original ceiling or walls. Brownboard can also be interior boards in a barn such as loft flooring or den walls. Whatever the origin, brownboard refers to the unweathered, unpainted side of a piece of barnwood.

Species: Typically pine or hemlock
Width: Random 5-14″
Length: Random 4-14′
Thickness: 3/4″-4/4″

Interior applications include:

This material can be run horizontally or vertically. If run horizontally, it must be milled to like widths, so you can create even rows when installing. If run vertically, random widths can be used. In either direction, milling the back is optional. Milling the back of the board will create a more even appearance.DSCI4901 ickness variations do not bother most people. Without milling, there is a more primitive look and a less than perfect seam. There is an additional cost to mill the backs. The cost is higher for horizontal and in order to price your job, we would need to know the specifics of the order and how many widths you would need.

Nautical Wood as Brownboard

Another option for exposed ceilings and walls is to use the backs of nautical wood rather than barnwood. It comes only in 6″ or 8″ widths and does not have quite the depth of color, but is an economical, reclaimed alternative. When milled on the fronts to create an even surface, these boards finish at 5/8″ thick.

SFO vinyl siding source?

I've been looking around for a small quantity (200sq ft) of white vinyl siding. Home Depot "used to sell it", Sears offers a "service", but I just want to buy the stuff. Yellow pages led to various Bay Area places that won't sell it to me unless I'm a licenced contractor. Meanwhile, when back in Massachusetts for the holidays, spotted piles of it in the local Home Depot. What gives? Can't figure this one out. Does anyone know a local source for the home improvement type?


A good repair company can do this it requires a $ 5.00 tool looks like a can opener
best solution.. call diding supplier and ask if they have anyone that specializes in siding repair
second option look in yellow pages reapir compaines and ask if they have repaired vinyl siding and do they have acces toseiding to match your old if any hesitation do not use them
donot be afraid to ask if you can call someone they did the same type of repair should be a quick fix

  • Avatar Moon Power Where To Find a Non-poisions Snake in Pennsylvania?
    Aug 08, 2009 by Moon Power | Posted in Reptiles

    I am looking for a non-poisions snake for a project I am working on and I have looked everywhere I would expect to find one!
    Here is Where I Looked
    1) Under logs and Rocks
    2) Shady places
    3) Weeds … because my brother wants it and any tips on what they eat? Just bugs?
    So anyway I would like some help on where to find a non-poisions snake in Pa. Like a Garter snake or something!

    • A barn perhaps. In the hay bales, or around cool dark places. I advise against keeping random snakes, but bugs, frogs, mice maybe, I mean the list goes on for food. Depends on the kind of snake you find.

  • Avatar Häschen Mädchen What's a good estimate on the price of a small barn? And what size is best?

    What's a good estimate on the price of a small barn? And what size is best?
    Actually, it would be more of a shed than a barn, big enough to hold 1-2 wether Boer goats that are being raised for meat and 1-2 market l …e barns or sheds, can you give me the names of the companies? Thanks!
    My garage isn't that big! It's crowded in there with the rabbit cages! If I could use the garage, I would. Thanks for the suggestions though! :)

    • What like an 8 x 10 or something? If you buy one built. $1000 If you buy materials, $500 unless you can get the wood cheap. Possibly off of an old barn. Or from a saw mill rough cut. And use logs for the poles. Maybe get … side taller than other and have one slope for the water. You can wrap the whole thing in old tin or old barn wood. Just build a shack. You know, Like the Amish do. No floor. Just hay. Or better yet. Just use the garage.
