Rough sawn Fir or Spruce for siding

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Planning to build our first coop very soon and getting ideas together for materials and such. Plan to have a board and batten exterior, and have found some very nice and economical wood to use at Home Depot. The exterior will be primed and painted so wood will be protected.  This wood is marked "Fir or Spruce "

Is there any reason this wood wouldn't be suitable or a bad idea? The price is right, the wood looks great. I understand it isn't as weather proof as cedar, but again it will be sealed on the exterior and painted..

Thank you for your thoughts and or ideas.

Most lumber is 'fir or spruce' and should be fine.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
