Painting OSB (inside the building) can be done with the cheapest emulsion you can lay your hands on. There is absolutely no point using expensive paints such as Bedec or a masonry paint. Save Bedec for outside.

But will it need primed if I use cheap emulsion? If so what with?

Slower progress - I did install the windows:

Only to decide the white really doesn't fit with the building... I will be getting some custom sized wooden ones; if anyone has used any companies for windows I would be open to recommendations.

Then I made a door and similarly dislike the result; Mike was right about the design being too heavy so I will replace with a shiplapped/t+g door.

I also finished off gable insulation:

Onduline has been ordered for installation next week. Am I correct to assume the 'sag' in the roofing membrane would allow insects into the void below the onduline? If so how do I seal this? The corrugation profile will be sealed with a foam eaves filler above a batten.

Could the ridge also act as an opening?

Thanks

I can not see from your last picture but Onduline will sag between the roof members such that over 5 yrs you will have a 3" to 5" sag which collects and holds water. Onduline has no strength to resist this. Guess how I know this.

If still using Onduline then you need to provide either ply (1/2") or 3/4" OSB for the Onduline to sit on.
