Camp Hearne Diary - March 8, 2010

The exterior siding has gone up. We selected HardiPlak which is a fiber cement board that is highly durable. It resists moisture and insect damage and is fire retardant. The smooth surface has a very similar feel to "tar paper" which would be the historic sheathing but certainly would not give us the durability we need for our replica. We also used a 12 inch vented Hardisoffit product that will allow for ventilation in the attic. We are ready for the painter!
