New Birch Plywood (6mm) off cuts re-used as shingles (overlapping tiles) for wall cladding.

We have been given samples of Birch Plywood (6mm) off cuts by a fencing co. to experiment with. They may be re-used as shingles for wall cladding (unvarnished / waterproofed  in pics)

Underneath samples in pics is a 2..44 x 1.2m board for scale

 I was told by a carpenter that he did not think the trated ply would stand up to rain, even when treated,  but if covered with grp sheets (pics below) , attractive wood effect would still be seen, but protected  .

Grp sheets could be added to walls for a "green house wall" with shelves or trellis as shown in previous prototypes
