We are building a new board and batten garden shed out of green, rough cut hemlock. We would like to stain it with a semi-transparent stain.
When can the stain be applied? How do we do this and what do we use? Should we wait for the wood to dry before installing the batten or just nail it on one side? If installed now, would we stain the boards, install the batten and stain them? Do we need to pre-treat the wood since it is fresh cut?
