Anyone put up any tongue and groove pine?

Has anyone installed any tongue and groove pine, some people call it carsiding. We are wanting to install it in a room for the ceiling and walls to give it a cabin type look. If you did what did you use for nails?

I have put up my fair share, but always in the LQ of a horse trailer. A nail won't stand up to the vibration of the highway, so you use screws. I believe I was attaching it to a stud, I'd use a finish nail with a fairly big head. Old barn tin on the ceiling looks nice in the application your doing. I have that in my man cave.

Read some online how to articles that mention using a 15 or 16 gauge finish nail out of a nail gun. With so much to install the idea of a nail gun makes it sound easier. Just want to make sure what we use holds up.

Does the metal give much of an echo in the room? Would you care to share a pic with me?

Would you risk 16 gauge? Found a deal on a 16 gauge Paslode nailer but wondered if it would hold up.

No echo. I'll have to text you a picture. I've lost the ability to post one here.

Tons of pics when I googled " barn tin on ceilings". I covered my corners with rope. Couldn't find a trim I liked. I just brad nailed it to the wall.

i didn't install it but I have it on my ceilings. I know they used a nail gun but have no idea what fasteners they shot thru it.
pretty sure there wasn't any liq nail used.
Them boys was climbing around like monkeys tho, on some of the shakiest cobbled together scaffolding you ever saw. I don't remember how high the peak of my ceiling is, but from the floor to the top of the wall where the ceiling begins is 14'.

Did that in the dining area along with the tin ceiling. I hired the labor and they used a nail gun. Attached the ceiling with lag bolts and that gave it a unique look. Sorry about the pic but it's the best I can do with the phone.

Even better if you stagger the nail angle. Don't drive any nails straight in. Just pity the poor fool who takes it down.

Same with decking. Angle your nails and it won't come loose.
