I am having a three season porch put on that is going to look somewhat like the included rough drawing (there is more non-window wall area then shown in the corners and the area under the windows is about 24", the windows will be casements). I'm thinking of putting shiplap v-groove clear pine on the ceiling with a natural finish and am thinking of using the same material for the walls and gable ends running vertically, painted white. The flooring is probably going to be some kind of stone or tile. I am pretty well settled on the ceiling and flooring material but any opinions on using the shiplap as the wall finish? Any ideas for other wall finishes? I'd really like something other than sheetrock. How about a different wood choice for the ceiling or walls other than pine? What other choices should I consider? This is in a Cape Cod location.
Thanks for any suggestions,
