Hello all I’m building a summer house and I like the look of the cedar red cladding but it’s bloody expensive.
Any other good ideas to use. and what cheapo can I use for the back of it!

if you put roofing membrane behind the cladding, it will reduce rain and draught penetration.

Shiplap is better than featheredge for close fit.

I have dyed and oiled my shiplap, so you wouldn't know what the timber was.

This is the cedar on mine after 5 years if you're worried about it silvering
