We decided to go with the barn red rather than the horrible orange. Not exactly a tough decision, huh?
Staining the boards takes a good bit of time as we're doing both sides so they breath the same (this is supposed to help with cracking). Since the back of the board will never be seen, we bought oops stain for only $7 a can. That's versus the $45 a can that the real stuff costs. Nice savings.

That means I got to do more jigsawing.
|Cut, cut, cut|
|One side down, three to go!|
