Is drywall not required for fire protection especially if you use plastic vapour barrier?

Im not sure about the drywall fo fire barrier, but if the whole inside is T&G wood it is combustible. Maybe the studs do have to be covered with drywall to assure their integrity against collapse for a certain amount of time, though. I would not in any case rely on adhesive to a paper faced gypsum board or fastening to it. If you need the gyp, I would put it over the VB, then install the horizontal furring, then the T&G. Maybe a code official can ring in here.

you are talking about a really thick wall past the inner plane of the wall. the best is to have horizontal blocking located in the wall along with taped drywall covering entire wall and then the T&G nailed with long finish nails through drywall and into the horizontal blocking along with being glued to the drywall. Horizontal blocking needs to be 16" or 24" layout...
