Recycling Wood Joists for Siding

We wanted some siding for a wall we built. So we used some 100 year old joists.

We took the joists and cut them into long strips.

Then we sealed them on both sides so they don’t warp.

Then we put them onto strips that we had attached to the wall. This way there is air behind the siding that keeps them dry.

And VOILA! We have a beautiful wall of siding. The wood lived a productive life for over a hundred years holding up a floor in some Brownstone. Now it can live another 20 protecting this Brownstone.
