    best wall to make for cedar clad


    Hi, I want to know what is the best wall make up for cedar clad for a new build, just need for one front face wall. I am wondering if a cavity wall plus cedar on top will be overkill. I will go for cavity brick wall all round three sides, and this would be for front face, just deciding what will work? Any ideas, need to meet building regs also. Need insulation inside also. Can I do just single brick inside, insulation and outside go straight in with cedar? Thoughts please.

    "In this situation the wall you want to be cladded in cedar does not need to be rendered

    Best practice is to batten the wall insulate and clad the wall remember theses walls are cavity and have insulation in between the cavity the external is an extra layer"

    "A cavity wall with an inner and outer skin is best. This can be in concrete block externally and lightweight block internally with 50mm insulation or 100mm full-fill insulation in the cavity.
    On the external skin, batten it out and then fix your cedar cladding to this with screws or ring shanked nails/"
