Hello: I am building a new shop outback. My home,built in 1891 has beveled pine siding. The new shop will have some sort of beveled siding to match the house. My question is...do I paint my new building when using cedar or pine siding. ( historic distric, no hardie board or vinyl allowed). I've heard that cedar can be stained and is easier to maintain. Pine on the other hand, can be sealed and last for years. Anyone have any ideas which way I should go? Thanks PS: I live in Arkansas, no weather extremes.
