no it will get fully protected inside and out....with sealer inside paint outside..... father made one about 35 years ago for camp about 7 feet tall all he did was paint it however his has an over sized roof so water fell off of it like a house sorta speak...it was still standing proud when we sold that camp had a few paint jobs over the years but still held up....he had an actual orange beacon light in his for fog lake it faced was about 3.5 miles long and about 2 miles wide could see that pretty much all over.
