$ell ,I'd live in that,wouldn't want to get snowed in all winter though.Very nice until he runs out of old barn board.Any easy way to weather new lumber quick??many times if I'am trying to hide a new building I'll coat it with Cabots old barnboard stain,looks like its been there for years.Frank C.

Good question about an easy way to quickly weather new lumber.  I have no answer.  One thing I have noticed is that slabs left out seem to weather and turn grey pretty quick here in MS.  Maybe just leaving board in the weather is the answer?  Not sure.

I have heard of a vinegar water mix to help speed up the graying of lumber, Has anyone else tried it?

seeing that fellow standing near it it looks like the ceiling would be mighty low if you were over 5 foot tall you would have to stoop to walk into the side area.

I have used Clorox on new cedar shingles to make them blend in with the old.  It worked fairly well.

Time and weather does a really nice job.  The shed my Dad and I built from rough sawn ash/poplar and oak was put up dripping wet off the rotary mill and dried to what you see.  It has battens on the inside because I wanted that old barn look.  It grayed out within 1 season and has continued to darken more than in the second picture as that was 3 years ago.   I am going to use a tinted sealer from sikkens next summer.

I've seen people go over their lumber "lengthwise" with a pressure washer to give new lumber the feel of "old barn boards", then let nature do the staining.

Doing so will give extra surface exposure and speed up the weathered appearance.

I like the idea of inside battens too!  My brothers dairy barn was built like that, nearly 100 years ago.  Makes for a smoother appearance on the outside.

Last spring I cut some white oak boards.  Now several months later they are gray and look very old.
