Exterior walls

Many rustic buildings in Québec have a thin vertical wood cladding on their exteriors that I adore the look of.

Of course, the fictional Aucoin family is in Thorny Rock, Maine now, but I think over the years they might have decided to re-side their sugar shack—maybe when they added the shop on—and they might have craved a bit of home when they did so. So the shack and the shop are both sided in this thin cladding.

I got the look with thin bamboo strips—bamboo placemats are fairly inexpensive, they have strips of just the right scale, and they come in many colors so you might find exactly what you want for your next mini project without even needing to stain. For this project, I wanted the look of dark, uneven, and super-weathered wood, so first I covered the structures in multicolored strips, placing various shades of darks and lights randomly on all the walls...
