Hardiplank directly on studs


Was reading the install specs on the hardiplank and it says that I can install directly onto studs if they are 16" OC provide i add a moisture barrier like felt. I was a bit surprised and assumed I would need to install over OSB.

What are the cons to installing directly onto the studs..ie will it weaken my structure and will it complicate when I add windows?

BTW this is for an 8' X 12' Shed.

You could get away with it on a shed with proper bracing.

I’d never even think about it in a house, to many water management issues.

OSB is down to $8 a sheet in my area. $80 buys you a much stronger structure.

You could easily put your foot through Hardi over studs. You couldn't do that if the wall was sheeted.

Send me a truckload, please. I priced this last Friday for a job and it was over $11.00/sheet here, and there is an OSB factory just 30 miles away.
Go figure, David

That's a lot of kindling. Never had any use for little piecs of wood glued together when plywood is a much better product*
