Hi,

My house is a metal construction covered with OSB on the exterior.
The plates are screwed to the metal.
A seam of 3 millimeters is kept between the plates.
Ideally I would like the walls to be completely smooth and painted.
I was suggested to attach a metallic net to the OSB plates using nails and then plaster it, thus creating a 1cm strong layer which is not glued to the OSB. This should prevent it from cracking should the OSB "breathe".
On that we will putty and then paint.
I would be glad to know whether a simpler/cheaper/better method to get a smooth painted exterior wall made of OSB plates exists. :yes:
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

Michael

well, yeah

I was talking about something like that:

Bust instead of the decorative layer to putty the walls and make them totally smooth and then to paint them.
Can you please expand on why do you think that it wouldn't stay smooth for long?

Just thought maybe there is a better way to achieve a smooth painted wall.
Maybe something similar to the way you smooth and paint interior gypsum walls. (Does it sound totally crazy?)

Thanks,
Michael
