Building My Shop | Installing Lap Siding | + Board & Batten

Thinking about installing lap siding or board and batten? Check out this DIY project where I walk you through the steps I took to install my own siding!

The shop is coming along, and man is it kicking my butt! Admittedly, the building process is a labor of love and I really do enjoy it to the fullest. This week I installed all of the lap siding and board and batten siding. I was inspired by a fellow builder who designs and builds a lot of structures with a wainscoting on the bottom third of the exterior walls. My wainscoting features a board and batten style which I suspect will look incredible once it’s painted. The lap siding seemed never ending but with good help and a rented scissor lift, it was knocked out in only about 2.5 days. If you haven’t already, check out the video below to see how it all went. As always, thanks for stopping by. – April
