Tongue and groove looks really nice.......natural, painted or stained.

You can add beams over it too.

I just did tongue and groove, beadboard in my sunporch, then painted it white. Looks so much better than the fake sheet stuff. So worth it.

Acclimated it, then glued and nailed. My only regret was not priming it first, but I was pressed for time.

Haha good eye, yeah I'm a guild fan even though the sign is the only thing guild I own. I'm not good enough to justify one. If I ever get good a westerly guild will be hanging on the wall.

We have used cypress siding smooth side for years. Hand pick the knottiest (but straightest) crap the have. I ve done close to 10,000 sq feet of it. Awesome stuff.

So are these like 1" X 3"? Or panels?

Don't buy the fiber garbage, use real wood.
We had an ice dam from the yukon, small drip of water and it swelled up.

The real wood trim bounced back, the fiber plank bead board not so much.

This is my work in progress. 99.9% done, just need to do the final finish stuff around the 2 skylights and then the base molding or whatever its called.

Redwood and Madrone we harvested here on the property and milled.

Did the floor, up the walls, and the ceiling.....

Looks very nice bayrunner!
How'd you place the beams - on top of the panel or butt the panel to them?
