Exterior Shed Clading (in Irelands weather)

Hows it going DIY people. Im looking for a not to expencive duriable cladding for my shed build. So far iv looked at marrine ply (8' x 4' 25mm) which is prety expencive with a decent thickness. And treated shiplap at (25 x 175mm per L/M), which i plan on putting 11mm 8 x 4' OSB behind them aswell. They both work out around 400-450. if anyone has any effective weatherproofing material ideas, fire away Thanks

Since this is mainly a US based site it's hard to know what's a available locally for you.
I do know marine plywood would be one of my last choices.
Anything wood is always going to be a mantaince issue.
We have no idea what look your going for so that needs to be factored in.
What's the house sided with?
Around here it's common to see vinyl or James Hardee siding on sheds.

yea true. well its good to know marines out of the question. yea thats true thats one main reason im trying to find the right stuff. Since i was recommened shiplap by an irish builder, i think il go with some of that treated. Well the look im lookng for is something like the top half of this building but less beams showing and wooden shiplap between the beams Name:  Rural_railway_station_built_timber_framing_style.jpg

And my last main problem im hoping you could also help with, is bolting or using metal plates to hold the timber frame and each beam to a 8'' block ( non cavity) wall. With 2x8 timber on it for the frame to be tyed to like so.. Name:  aframing-floor-anchors.jpg

Does this tie into your thread regarding the hole in the ground you dug and filled with concrete? Just curious. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/gr...ml#post2332402

It doesn't matter if you use screws or nails, BUT it does matter that you use the correct screws or nails. Nails must be hot dipped galvanized siding nails with a small head and a twist. Screws must either be ceramic coated or otherwise rust proofed.

If cement siding is available in your area, I would recommend that.

reckon i would use metal siding on a shed or garage. cement board is nice but heard water can affect it. i would use osb and roofing paper then siding.

That looks like a roofing nail, siding nails are narrower with a smaller head. I'm not convinced they won't split the wood siding but it shouldn't take long to find out
