I went with Ever True 1/4" knotty cedar siding from Lowe's. I wanted the Dura-Groove that comes pre-finished to save time but it was too much to justify. So, I've been sanding and finishing planks. They are sitting where the house was sitting for almost two years.
This is the big house that is soon to be listed. Also working on a good handful of projects to get it ready, it's ready for the roofers to come and do their thing. You can see Tiny in the background sitting in its' temporary place.
