Knotty Pine Paneling: Do's and Don'ts

kyrral's picture

I will be paneling a new construction small cabin (800 sq ft) and would like some advice on paneling (mainly to keep a check on the contractor who prefers immediacey vs. shopping around. I can't fine anything online under Fine Homebuilding or This Old House. I see both pre-finish and unfinished avaialble. Advantages/Disadvantages. Are there any local (so cal) suppliers? Anything else?

Here in NW Ohio I think I can still get the original knotty pine paneling.  The ship lapped varying widths that had the dished out portion along one edge.  Mixing the widths along the wall was traditional.

I do know when we could it wasn’t cheap.

What we can get readily that’s a knotty pine is what is called here-barn siding.  1x8 tongue and groove, one side beveled edges with a v-groove in the middle and the other just beveled edges, no groove.  Plenty of knots.

 

Either one you’d be smart to stain b/4 install as shrinkage will show an unstained tongue
