Solution: 1×8 horizontal ship lap siding, board and batten vertical siding, and Douglas Fir Timbers (beams)
This recent project takes us to Northwest Montana. This build utilizes board & batten siding to contribute to the rafter, gable, and entryway accents that are a clear focal point of this unique rustic build.
The 1×8 horizontal ship lap siding seen above is part of the Montana Timber Products ranchwood™ product line. At a closer look, one can see the variation between two different textures. The two lighter colored boards that run into the bottom right hand corner of the picture feature a circle saw texture, replicating primitive milling processes. Two boards above features an even more traditional, hand hewn texture.
The gables and rafters seen above are part of the Montana Timber AquaFir™ product line. The AquaFir™ line has a slightly fresher look relative to the more weathered ranchwood™ line. All Montana Timber Products’ prefinished wood siding utilizes Seal-Once, a 100% VOC free waterproofer with a 10 year limited warranty against water ingress.
