I'm getting ready to replace the tongue & groove on my outside porch
The stuff they sell at Home Depot and Lowe's is 1X4 SYP with a
down the center of each board. I'd rather use a flat
board without a groove but
can't find any around here. Can I just
install the boards with the groove side
down? I plan on painting the
floor. They did have some fir T&G at a different
store that was flat
on both sides but I didn't like the looks of it, they were
small 6 inch
or so lengths finger jointed together.

Try your local lumber yards. They usually have MUCH more usable wood
than Lowes or Home Despot.
OR go with some nice cypress, ipe, or white oak with a clearcoat
instead of paint for a really nice looking porch.
