Rough Sawn Pine Interior & Finish???
Hello to ALL and frenchy this ought to be right up your alley.......
Still planning another part of our retirement home....if I do enough of this; all of you will know what the house looks like even before it's actually built!
Finally found a place where the interior was finished in rough sawn knotty pine....about 10" planks.....gorgeous...took the DW by and she stopped dead in her tracks.....said that's exactly what she's always wanted......ahhhh easy decision.
So, this place simply left the planks/panels as is and it smelled terrific but I'm wondering if I should put a thin coat of something on it to minimize food odors and such over the next 50 years.......maybe spray a thin film of shellac on it or something? I'm planning for proper ventilation just wondering if anybody ever does anything on the interior or if I should simply leave it alone. I will use it on "every" outer wall of the interior and trim, den, bedrooms, bath, kitchen etc......not yet sure if inner walls will be drywall finish or more lumber (all walls will be backed with drywall for fire safety.
Open to any ideas.
