Here in P.R just like Florida we have lots of rain and humidity lots of ants and insects I've always used P.T wood and paint the out side with varnish wood color or oil paint and haven't had a problem. Once I used reg pine and had termites tear up the wood and lots of fire ants with eggs not good. Re lee is right some times P.T wood would warp but a good 2x4 on the back should hold up nicely for a long time. I would only use P.T...
Just an idea I would not use this for my loft but here in P.R what many people do for there wood work in the back yard say a terrace or sheds they paint brand new P.T wood with old used motor oil paint all the wood let it soak and dry and then use it for outdoor work. It would NEVER! Get termites or rot and it leaves a nice stain color you can paint over it once it drys too just an idea it works xtreamly well.
