White Pine Walls

The walls are up.  We used simple tongue and groove White Pine, which you can buy at any Home Depot or Lowes. 

It didn't take long to put up the paneling, partly because we cut a few corners.  Well, really just the one.  Unlike the Cedar siding and floorboards, we didn't stagger.  Meaning that entire wall sections begin and end on one stud.  While this made for quick measuring and cutting, it also meant we have very visible wall seams.  But after studying Jay's fencl ( ) and that of my predecessors, I'm pretty sure that this is common and easily hidden away under a strip of wood.  Since our house is longer it has more seams, but I'm sure we'll manage to make things look nice when it comes time to put up trim and such.

Obviously we spent some time cutting around windows and pipes...

And really annoying rafters...

Though Steve did all that, but hey, I did take the pictures.
