Tongue and Groove

The outdoor roof overhang tongue and groove is indeed cedar planks from good old Kettle Falls, Washington. Painter Jim recommends that we add a coat of anti-weathering, mildew resistant finish. Sounds like a good idea!

Here the warm sun dries the oil finish on the interior ceiling reclaimed Douglas fir tongue and groove. The clear skies and warm temperatures made this step in the process quick and easy.

Jim is applying the oil finish. He is using a roller to apply oil to the edges and will use a brush to cover the surface of each 10-foot board.

The completed stack of ceiling lumber awaits installation. There are 4-, 6-, and 8-inch widths, and they will be applied in a random pattern. We look forward to the completed ceiling!
