What a great idea, it seems made for it. Intrigued to see how you're going to finish it - don't think foam board will take paint at all well.

I think painting foamboard depends on its covering. The very first lot I got from Canada (got caugth for the import duty too boohoo) but it was faced with a fine wood pulp that made it look like the shiny face of hardboard - think this is the sort called Gatorboard and you can't get it here. That board I pasted with stone cement using a stencil for the shapes and it's the main walls of the great hall extension.
This one needs covering over the slashed bits and an area that is planned to be rendered, so that will be covered too. For the rest I'm going for the thin fibreglass brick effect paper that you can get and hope that it gives it some structural extra strength. The foam I'm using for the outer walls is the one recommended for not warping with time so let's hope it lives up to it ;)

Great idea well executed. I wondered how you'd do this - might have known you'd have a cunning plan!
