    Next Spring I need to build a second coop - I want to match the look of my other that has T1-11 siding on it. I came across a siding at Lowe's that resembles T1-11 called Smart Side Engineered Wood Siding http://www.lowes.com:80/pd_55897-132-27874_4294858164_4294937087_?productId=3058153&Ns=p_product_prd_lis_ord_nbr|0||p_product_quantity_sold|1&pl=1&currentURL=%2Fpl_Wood%2BSiding_4294858164_4294937087_%3FNs%3Dp_product_prd_lis_ord_nbr%7C0%7C%7Cp_product_quantity_sold%7C1.

    Supposed

    That looks a lot like the stuff I bought at Home Depot for my coop a few weeks ago. It is easy to use and to paint. I think it is basically the same stuff as T1-11

    Looks like the stuff we used also. We primed/painted insides of panels before nailing them in place. Used construction adhesive (in addition to nailing) along the top and bottom, to tightly secure the panels.
