Building a 66' x 48' monitor barn and thinking of using green hemlock vs green treated syp for the siding.
Wanting to use 12" board, 3" batten x 16'
What's the going rate and does it move that much? I know treated syp is a bear.
Thanks

A few months on sticks this time of year will make a big difference. If you insist on putting it up green, I say no more than 10 " wide.

We could stack it and dry it some. It'l take a while to build the building anyways. 
Sticker it and strap it or just sticker it? 
Under black plastic with a fan on each end or?

I put up 10 inch boards and 4 inch batten. From stump to sawmill to building, most times the same day. All is well more than 10 years, might even be almost 15.

How long did you have to wait before oiling it?
The barn will take about 5k sq ft I think or so, we'll have a bit to 'oil'.  :D

I used pressure treated 4x4 every 4 feet than nailed a 2x4 across them and nailed the boards to that.
