I am building a shop and considering using 2"x6" framing on the exterior walls instead of 2"x4" for insulation purposes. I understand that with 2"x6"s I can put them on 24" centers. I am thinking though that if I do that, my interior wall covering will have to be stiff enough to not bow. I am planning to use a plywood type interior wall covering so that I can easily attach things to the walls, so if I want to use something thin, say 3/8" plywood, wouldn't I need to put my 2"x6"s on 16" centers to make the interior walls more stiff?
