Outside and inside, the outside is done in one of the fancy colours, keeps the women happy, and we've done the inside white, but now you've mentioned about the wood breathing maybe we shouldn't have scratch

Don't whatever you do wood stain inside and out, it traps the moisture inside and you have mouldy growing inside the loft all over.
I did it.
I had to sand every inch of the inside of my loft, it took forever.
