Chinkin shrinkin cabin boards
« on: October 31, 2021, 03:25:10 PM »
Our cabin was built from rough sawn air dried Red and White Pine. Our Interior paneled walls were built insulated for sound deadening, however there was no underlayment under the boards covering the insulation. Over the last 27 years the boards have shrunk I reckon about as far as they are going to shrink. Some, considerably leaving some  unsightly large gaps.  Pondering on this actually for a couple years, I could come up with no easy way to fix this. Until now!
