Can I DIY a Slatted Wood Wall?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: My husband and I are moving into a loft that's in a converted warehouse. To make the space feel warmer, we'd really like to turn one of the sheetrock walls into a slatted wood wall (not sure if this is even what it is officially called!). We would like to put the slats of wood over the sheet rock instead of replacing the sheetrock -- I think that would keep things simple...

Is this something easy enough to DIY or would we be better off hiring someone? Does anyone know of any carpenters in the San Francisco area that could do this sort of project?
