I would recommend using a tongue-and-groove pine.

  • You can get it "Penta-treated" to guard against insects.This is not the same as pressure-treated, so it is good for covered porches but not for an uncovered exterior porch.
  • The wood can be left natural, coated with a clear finish, stained or painted.

Perfect for a rustic home in the woods. Very affordable and easy to install.
