shed wall upgrade

I have an existing shed on my property that I would like to convert to a studio space. My first concern is that the original builder installed the siding directly onto the wall studs, without any felt/tyvek, sheathing or flashing. The interior walls have drywall installed already on them. Is there any way to seal up the shed walls from the weather without tearing down the siding and starting over?

I can think of two ways,

1. Apply sheathing, tyvek and new siding to the outside of the building siding.

2. Ask god to miracle some sheathing and tyvek under the existing siding.
