Use 9mm waterproof plywood on the outside and fix two inch thick polystyrene on the inside of the plywood covered with 6mm plywood.
Making a sandwich of plywood and polystyrene will give you good insulation and save a lot of money on cold nights.
Make sure they are a tight fit, to keep in the heat.
