Sept 2019: Wall sheathing



Plywood sheathing was needed to make the outside walls of the old house & garage flush with the add on.

We chose to sheath all but one side of the house with CDX to improve the shear strength:

On the unsheathed wall, we made a top to bottom X brace with metal straps for lateral strength (hard to see what's going on in this washed out pic):

And added more strapping to better tie together old and new sections of house:
