painted drywall paneling over unfinished drywall PGM Wood Products wood planking (directly to the studs) pine or cedar (most likely pine)
I like the idea of wood planking because it's easy to work with and do a little at a time but I've seen some manufacturers don't recommend it be applied directly to studs (and that a drywall backer should be used). Is that really necessary? If I have to have a drywall backer, I think I might just do paneling over it or (if I can't find a paneling I like) or just paint it.
Any feedback you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated!
