1x4 Pine boards for wall covering.
I have a cabin in central Maine that I am doing the interior walls in. Right now there is 3/8 plywood on the interior walls. This leaves me with the option to nail up just about anything.
I have a large stock of 1x4 pine that I would like to use.
One question I have is on spacing. It will be a dry winter time heated enviorment when I put these up. I've delt with cedar siding buckling because they were installed too close together. I'm not sure if I should have the same concern here.
Also, what would be the best way to finish this? I plan on using a poly finish after the wall is complete. Is it ok to just finish one surface of the board like this?
Thanks for your input.
