Framing and Zip R Vertical Sheathing
I am going to be building a single story house with 8’ exterior walls. I was wondering if I could use 2×4 walls at 24” centers with 1.5” zip r vertical sheathing. I would use double 2×4’s at each side for better nailing and shear strength of the zip and a single in the middle. I think it would be strong and would use spider or mineral wool. The house would be 30 miles from the coast in central n.c.
