Three Siding Materials that hold paint very well
Siding Material suited for Stain
[D] T1-11 type Vertical Panel Board - this is more like a plywood, it is stronger than the ones above but not as well suited for painting. If you want the stained wood look but Cedar or Split Log bust your budget, then this is the material for you. It does require more maintenance than the painted materials above and it will over time tend to warp a little but it is sturdy and has a wonderful look. The standard stain color is shown in the first two images. The third image on the right shows a customer selected darker stain. There is a slight upcharge but many customer tell us the color stain they want.

We stock more of the High Barns than any other. All 10 wides feature two large 4' deep lofts (one on each end) and double 30" doors on the end or double 36" doors on the side. You can choose metal or shingle roof (no up charge). We also offer the siding in easy to paint Masonite or T1-11 for the stained look. You can design a barn in a range of sizes: 8, 10, 12, or even 14 wide and any length you want. See more on Interior and Exterior Options.
