4×8 Sheathing on 9′ wall
We are in Minnesota (Zone 6a). 2200 sq/ft single level (9′ walls), slab on grade.
I was planning on doing 4 x 9 sheets of plywood on the exterior of my double stud wall. The 9′ sheets are about double the price of 4 x 8 sheets. What is the best strategy for applying 4 x 8 sheets on a 9′ wall? Staggered horizontally? Lot of extra seams to tape…and is it counter productive to even consider 4 x 8’s if I have those extra seam that aren’t backed by a stud. I REALLY don’t want to pay $35 a sheet for 4 x 9 cdx.
