No sheer strength in Garage walls


The osb or plywood needs to be gapped for expansion. Put the foam on after the osb if thats what your looking to do. I don't think the minimal increase in R value will be worth it.

I think your right, there is just such minimal sound and thermal gain off of 1" or so rigid insulation. And it would be pretty darn expensive.

How do I know the gap. Are there like spacers you can use when installing the osb, sort like those white cross shaped tile spacers? Or do I just make a piece of wood for a spacing jig?

A spacing jig? You call a Blacksmith and have him make you one, and while your at it borrow his micrometer to check the thickness of your siding.

okay so what is the spacing in regards to osb alignment to avoid buckling issues due to thermal expansion? Is it 1/16'th? an 1/8'th?

I am a blacksmith so....

I don't see anywhere he mentions spacing dimensions, unless it's buried in a link I haven't read yet. There are pages and pages on those of those links.

There it was in that tiny 8 point font These recommended gaps of
1⁄8" must also be left around all openings. (I guess you couldn't have just told me that)

Its right there, last link, last paragraph, second to the last sentence.

GBR took the time to supply you the links to answer most if not all of your questions, youd think you would be interested in the answers.

How thick is your siding?

Instead of being a passive aggressive troll you could have just told me or not posted at all. I already said previously in the thread I don't have time to read through all the links right now. I'm at work. Sheesh. Grow up.

Leave your siding alone.

OSB the interior so you can hang cabinets ect wherever you like and then

cover with 3/4 drywall for fire prevention.

Do the other steps as Ron posted , mineral wool insulation a big + for fire proofing.

Run your outlets just like in a factory in conduit along the walls.

No stranger to machining ......whatcha got ?
