Some photos and drawings would help. I couldn’t get understand what you where describing.

As a rule, do what you can to keep water out (sealed on top and sides). But allow for water to get out (drain) using seep holes if appropriate. As always consider wood expansion and contraction in the design. This usually means a strong frame, and then a panel or boards that float or are otherwise installed so they can expand and contract without binding.

If your overall structural design is unusual, it likely means it is a bad design. The common designs have evolved based on tried and true techniques. Of course modern materials open up new design possibilities.
