 Finishing barn interior

The tackroom/storage space in the barn right now is not finished -- just exposed studs. I am looking for something cheap, easy, and sturdy to finish it and was thinking of T1-11 plywood siding. What do people think -- good idea or not? Other thoughts?

We used a barnwood (purchased at Lowes)exterior siding 4x8 sheeting in our barn. Gave it a rustic look without much work.

What I saw a lot of working in the deep south when they were recovering from Katrina and had to get their businesses back online quickly--believe it or not-- was 1/4" luan (mahogany) underlayment used as paneling, and in some cases in homes--before and after the storm---was OSB which was painted white. At first glance it looked like a textured ceiling. I'd use drywall screws instead of nails. And the OSB is self-supporting so you could arrange tools and shelves on it easily.

Oliver, the 7/16 OSB is hard to beat for price and all around unless you have a real moisture problem. EW's advice is good. Do not use 1/4 inch on walls. kt

Thanks! I'll have to go to Home Depot and the local lumber yard and see what is available. 4X8 sheets are really appealing -- quicjk and easy!

jus my two cents, wont be as easy or cheap as osb, but if you have a concrete floor, and want to keep rats/mice out think about 4x8 sheets of fiber cement board, in this area Hardy Brand,

impervious to water, etc, goes up with nail gun, paintable, and trim boards available.

I like fiber cement siding products but how does it work to keep mice and rats out?

Randy; I've heard the term "Fibre Cement Board", but never had an occasion to work with it. What is it made of? Does it have cemant in it? What benefit does it have over other materials like Masonite, Common Sheetrock, etc. Usually the word "Cement" rymes with "Heavy", is this the case? fill me in, it might serve a need for me someday if I knew what it is for. Thanks. Frank.

Yes it does have cement/fibers, it is very hardy, and would be nearly impossible for rats/mice to chew through if properly fitted. Not a guarantee, but mice woudl definately have a heck of a time getting past this stuff.

I used it for my house siding,(no mice so far, three years in house in the country) it comes pre primed for painting, smooth finish or wood grain, can be cut with a carbide tipped circular saw, and mounted with nail gun,or drilled and screwed.

It is heavy, though only 1/4" thick. As to advantages over masonite etc, it will not rot or delaminate even if the paint/caulk wears out.

Termites wont touch it, and If cleaning is needed, a pressure washer wont affect it.

Hope this answers Q's.. jameshardie.com

Cementious board, the stuff used as backer-board for ceramic tiles, and commonly known as blue-board, cement-board or Fibre-Cement board is just that, fibre-reinforced concrete board.

Picture sheet-rock but made with cement instead of gypsum.

It is rodent resistant because it is so hard they can't chew through it without a LOT of work. It is also really pricey.

We use galvanized tin sheeting a lot, if you use low-profile galv. roofing it is pretty cheap and goes up really easy. It's not bad looking for something like a barn, if you use it to line a shop or something like that you get the added bonus of fire safety and resistance to dirt and bumps from hard objects.

All in all, OSB is also a good choice for a barn, if you want to add to the rodent proof aspect, sprinkle a good amount of rat poison, the sealed pouches are really good, inside the walls anywhere you think they might try to get in before you seal the walls, that way if something tries it won't succeed for long.

Best of luck.
