What should I put on here siding or sheetrock?


I have removed the siding that was up in order to build my extension. I now a tyvek ed wall inside my extension. I am going to build a 10 foot set of shelves and store bikes rakes and other things along this wall. I was tempted to just leave it as Tyvek but what other options do I have for this wall?

My garage wall exterior: first sheeting, insulated 2x6 wall then sheetrock.

I don't plan on finishing the rest of the shed so was going to leave this with just Tyvek but now I am figuring just a simple 1/2" sheetrock for the wall. A quick tape job and paint that way when I install some lights in there the white wall will make it look brighter.

The sheeting is all you need after that it doesn't much matter.
For brighter I would just spray everything white.

Tyvec is all about rain, I would take it down. It will just look ratty after a couple years of abuse.

That's the plan, can't remember, hoping it is CDx not OSB.

You can still paint OSB but some of the chips from the different species can discolor the paint unless you use an oil base primer.

I would make sure to close up that hole in the corner and any other hole that allows daylight in.

Oh yeah.

It will all be well enclosed. I will hopefully have crew show up this weekend to help raise beam, and hang 6 more rafters and finish sheething the roof. With an inspection either this evening or Monday morning.

When it is done I will share the results. It will not look like anything that could be published in family handyman but it will hold a lot of tools toys and others. It is way overbuilt and I am ready to be finished so I can start populating it.
