You didn't say what size the trim material is on your shop, but there 
are any number of brands of fascia material that is made partly of 
concrete and milk jugs. Hardie, and Certainteed each make trim material 
that is 3/4" thick, and comes in 4", 6" (and 8"I think) widths. You will 
probably have to pre-drill the nail holes, but it works great. My shop 
is sided with the Hardie material, and all the window, door and corner 
trim is also from Hardie. I went with pine for the fascia though, but I 
can't remember why I went that way, probably because I was looking for 
something 1.5" thick, which Hardie didn't/doesn't make.
