I'm planning to have a weekender home built on my country place. One of my bids(the cheapest) for the shell doesn't include exterior sheathing. The company in question has been around for quite a while and seems to have a good reputation in the area. The shell, as built by said company, consists of 2x6 framing with an upright every 8' with four horizontal members on 2' centers between the uprights. This would be covered directly by 29ga metal siding with an optional tyvek wrap. So, no exterior sheathing of any kind. Does this sound acceptable? Location is mid Missouri.
