Here’s your 12x16 “cedar” colonial with a different look. It is board and batten, sided in air dried rough sawn poplar from one of the local mills. The poplar ranged from 5/4 to 1 ½ thick, so you can imagine the fun I had trying to match board thickness so the battens lay flat. It took 4 of us to raise the long wall with no windows, without battens, they were installed once the roof was on. The gable ends took 5 of us, due to the extra weight from the poplar.
The project took most of the summer of 2008. I used your windows and door hardware. That was my wife’s choice, she insisted that I spend too much money on the shed. In the end, I’m very happy with the product. The bare wood look will only last until next spring, when the walls will get a nice light gray that will accent the hunter green trim well.
