Got some walls built. Got 4/6 built. Ran short of 2x4's. Heading to Lowe's this morning for more.
I'm going to build the longer walls, 16 feet, in two sections to make it easier to stand up by my self.

I wouldn’t, go 16” OC with 7/16 osb/plywood. If you jump up 5/8” you could go 24”OC either way will probably cost the same.

One other suggestion, to get it dried in fast use ice and weather shield instead of roofing paper. It won’t blow off if you can’t get the shingles on in a day and will protect the sheathing from swelling.

:thumbup: 5/8 it is. Still going to do like 20" OC just because the math works out better.
Also I really like the ice and weather shield idea, that is a winner.
