Replacing Old Clapboard Siding
We feel lucky to have a quality lumber yard not far selling clear cedar clapboards we've fitted around the new front window, which helps enclose the old farmhouse porch here. It costs $1.64 a ft. unprimed, and we have used a few hundred dollars worth of it.
The sunroom on the far left side of the house will need an enclosed interior wall of this clapboard replaced as well. The far right greenhouse clapboards are ok.
Matching the paint clapboard's color to Benjamin Moore's "Calming Cream" was a challenge though, since the paint has faded a bit around the house. I am anxious to paint at least this front portion of the house.
