Salvage finds

Stopped by the Historic Houston's Salvage Warehouse today to pick up some wood for the exterior repairs. They had cedar 105 clapbard siding, as indicated by the tapered/bevel cut just like the cypress  wood on my house. The only difference is that mine has a vertical cut grain to it and a rougher texture since it only has 1 layer of the original paint on it.

For the sake of ease I just purchased the 15' boards. I think the end result will come out better if large sections are replaced so that the walls are seamless.

My oh my! What you can fit in a Mitsubishi Eclipse!
15' boards. Only 4' of wood protuded from the back. 
The green board on top is a broken piece of siding from my house. Almost an exact match!
