Okay, the people that read the "walls" forum haven't replyed yet

Looking for an appropriatte product for board and batton.
The building is shaded in a forest, with only the south wall getting direct sun. Temps range from -15 F to +95 F with high humidity. Looked at Wht pine, spruce hemlock, cedar etc, and some composites. Deep penetrating stain will be the finish. Any ideas?

Sounds like my house - in the woods.
Cedar and the composites will probably be the most durable and long lasting(rot resistant). The stain would be a good choice as long as it has mildewcides. You will undoubtedly get some algae and mildew no matter what your choice is.
