I know. I know. I'm "wrapping" the perimeter of the bottom of the shop with a skirt board which the Hardie siding will kill in to. I don't want gutters so there will be considerable "splash back" during rains. I priced 5/4x8 PVC and it is prohibitively expensive. About three weeks ago, a friend of mine who's got a sawmill, brought in a container of Ipe from Cartagena, Columbia so i can get the ipe cheaper than the PVC. I'm not trying to promote sacrilege here. I just need a product that will hold up. Ipe is oily so, even after a wipe down with alcohol, will it hold the primer and paint? Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.
