Innovative siding style. How to accomplish?

Posted by listener (My Page) on

I am attaching a link of a blog post I created last summer. I have a shed in my back yard and lots and lots of left-over wood from a newly constructed house. I would like to side the shed in a similar style to the restaurant Ippudo on Fourth Avenue in Manhattan. How would be the best way to attach the wood scraps to the side of the shed, which is currently tyvek over pine planks over basic balloon framing?

Here is a link that might be useful: the shed and the inspiration

RE: Innovative siding style. How to accomplish?

You could use finishing nails (for the smaller head size) through the scraps and tyvek into the planks. Not a great solution as it leaves a lot of nail heads showing and puts a lot of holes in the tyvek.
I'd consider installing T1-11 siding and then using construction adhesive (i.e. Liquid Nails) to attach the scrap wood pieces (make sure to get the Exterior grade).
