Replacing Rotted Framing / Sheathing in Bathroom
A house in Cleveland, Ohio area (Zone 5) was built 10 years ago. Due to a leak in shower, there was rot in some 2×4 framing and exterior OSB sheathing. The house has what looks like open cell spray foam. Rotted 2×4 and OSB was cut out and replaced, bottom plate of treated lumber was left, and all nearby original wood was scrubbed with vinegar and disinfected with bleach (separately and days apart). Time is being given to dry out. The exterior had OSB sheathing with Tyvek house wrap and some maybe 1/4″ foam product, then vinyl siding (I was told the siding company installed that 1/4″ foam under their siding). The house wrap from this rotted section was also discarded.
1. Is it ok to not put house wrap back on this roughly 6’x4′ spot?
2. Any other suggestions about how to proceed or improve?
3. Lastly, any concerns or issues that come to mind?
