my sister just got a new house and her husband wanted to put up red cedar slats on the walls like the ones you use for a cedar closet. the room is for the hot tub. just wondering if it is safe for that application? didn't know if they were meant for a room in the first place (breathing concerns with the humidity from the hot tub.) if you could help me out with an answer it would be greatly appreciated. just a little brother looking out. thanks

From a health viewpoint, red cedaris a wood of choiice and good for this.
But I think you are describing the thin version of paneling made about 3/16" thick. it is more likely to warp from the miposture in this location. A thicker cedar board would be better.
