If you do do the side walls out of wood, make sure there is a good layer of heat refractory insulation between the oven and the walls. I would suggest using 12 gauge steel studs,maybe a hardy board or duraock layer before you apply the wood or plywood.I don't think straight wood sides would be wise, but i could be wrong.
I am in the process of deciding right now the same thing. I have my oven built, the front done, the chimney done, and I was thinking doing those rough grooved cedar shakes for the side and back walls, and a wooden roof shingle or a copper sheet metal roof.
Send me your email and i will send you pictures of mine as i built it. Steve aka G-Man
