clubhouse walls-imaginative suggestions wanted


i'm trying to cover the outside of a kid's clubhouse economically. i'm thinking about using exterior particleboard or plywood. if they are primed and painted, will they hold up/last? Is there another cheap wayu to cover the shell? the walls are 6x8' and 8x8' with various windows and a door. thoughts? imaginative suggestions?

Start looking at your local craigslist. I bet you could salvage/recycle lots of cool stuff.

Doors jump to mind. It would be cool to clad it in doors. Very club-house-y.

When I was building my hunting trailer/shack, I found some pre-primed, pre-painted exterior paneling. It seems like it was under $20 a sheet. Cheap and easy, once I figured the cost of paint.

T1-11 plywood is somewhat decorative (vertical grooves about 8" apart), is structural, relatively cheap, paints well, should hold up fine, easy to work with.

Great ideas-keep em coming! As far as my original post, will exterior particleboard or plywood hold up if primed and painted? Thanks-

Nope.... it's intended to be covered with siding....
It'll last for a couple of seasons but that's about it.

how about the t1-11 plywood bob recommends- does that stuff last if painted?

What about my idea of getting 4' pieces of 2x6 from the home schmepot cull lumber section for 58 cents a whack and ripping them vertically and the putting the good side out to form, in essence, pine siding!!?
