Sheathing to Interior vs. Exterior
I will be framing our new house come spring 2022 after the original company not longer seems interested and other framing company are either fully booked or charging a fortune for labour.
Our wall assembly has the sheathing (in red) on the inside of the 2×6 wall to avoid “cold sheathing”. This make building the wall a bit more laborious since the sheathing and taping can’t be done before the wall is lifted in place.
Is there any real risk is the sheathing is place on the exterior side of the 2×6 wall?
