Default Pine siding

Has anyone used or seen the pine siding that makes your home look like a log home? I am looking for honest opion on this pine siding.

I've seen it but I'm not sure what sort of opinion you're looking for, besides and honest one.

If you mean whether it will withstand the elements, I suppose it's like anything else - if installed properly and maintained regularly, it should be okay. I've seen it on houses build in the '50s and still looked good.

Welcome T.J.:
All the siding jobs I have seen using the pine log look are holding up just fine. The ones I have seen are all stained and seem to hold the stain well. Pine siding I have seen has never been good about holding paint though. I think the pine logs have a ship-lap joint to turn the water.
You should be able to get the pine logs for much less than I would have to pay, since you live in the heart of the pine forest .
