One of our prospective customers eventually decided to have a local builder build a cedar clad garden office for them. I asked "Are you treating the cedar or leaving it to weather"?
We've put 2 coats of Osmo UV protection oil on it hoping to preserve the lovely colour but we can already see that the colour is losing richness where there's constant sun (not even been THAT constant this summer!!)
We plan to re-oil it annually and hope for the best - we don't want to become slaves to it!!
So many companies say that cedar is zero maintenance - it quite clearly isn't.
If you want a truly zero maintenance exterior that will maintain it's "just installed" look for 25 years then the QCB and the QC6 are the only design in the U.K which fits the bill...
The QCB "basic" garden office...
(best value garden office in the U.K...)
The upmarket QC6 garden office...
(top spec building regulations garden studio with loads of options and flexibility...)
This is how the cedar or pressure treated timber ends up if you don't paint or stain it regularly...
You can see more information on why timber needs looking after here.

Dear Booths Garden Studios,
Just an email to thank you for all your help with my studio. It has been just over a year but it is finally finished outside.
Thank you ever so much for all your help, the studio is fantastic and an excellent quiet space for me to do my design and illustration work. I had some bookshelves added in so that I can display all the children’s books that I have worked on. It is also a handy space for my two cats to rest in as they installed my cat flap for me too!
If there was anybody interested in a studio then I would be very happy for them to visit here.
Thank you again for all you help.
The studio looks great nestled in the trees and will be a useful addition to the New Build. We were also very impressed by your installers - not only were they professional and courteous but they also took all the rubbish away with them (not used to that!).
