removable walls

I currently don't have a shop space so I am using my covered back porch. At the moment I have just few enough tools that I can keep them completely out of the weather, but I am picking up a table saw today so I need to find a better way to keep the elements away from my tools.
I used to work at a children's museum fabricating exhibits. While I was there I learned how to make 4X8 wall sections that would lock together but could easily be taken down and stored. Basically you frame a 4X8 section with horizontal studs every 36" then put some sort of skin on one or both sides depending on the application. I was thinking this would work very well for in may case. My question is what wood will hold up best to the weather? Cost is an issue so I'm hoping the answer will be OSB. The walls will most likely have to hold up for about a year until I can dig out and build a basement under my house.

OSB will not work. exterior plywood should make it though one year, but T-111 is a much better choice and will last as long you you need it too.
