    ^it seems to me that the impermeable steel would give you an outside vapor barrier, and that putting an interior barrier up as well would cause moisture problems, no?

    I guess those that make the rules always know better...

    The exterior sheeting probably isn't sealed at the top and bottom.

    Exterior has barrier, interior barrier required supposedly has the ability to breath in one direction, not allowing moisture to be trapped in walls.

    Interesting. I’m not sure I like that either.

    I think it is a high humidity thing. Exterion/interior wasn't code when I was in California. But it most certainly is in NC. I can understand it though. With high humidity in the southeast US, you will almost certainly get some moisture in a wall. Outside temperatures clash with wall temperatures. Internal wall temperatures clash with interior temperatures. If you aren't religiously running a dehumidifier, then that condensation will likely happen inside the wall. This setup minimizes that, and allows what condensation does accumulate to escape in a controlled manner.

    I guess we do it backward to what's shown.

    Yes, allows moisture to exit the wall cavity.

    Looking good :thumb

    It really soaks it up, don't it?

    Good idea painting it before loading up the interior.
    Half of my garage is still unpainted (after 38 years).:fpalm

    Putting OSB in garage (except firewall), and it soaks up primer like a sponge !

    I opted for 1/2 plywood in my last shop vs OSB. I hate that flaky crap & the cost difference was only a dollar or two ea sheet.

    Sorry, I don't remember seeing you post anything about using OSB prior to seeing this picture.
    I'd have given you a couple of tips.
    Since yours is already up, anybody else reading this, if you're going to use OSB, prepaint it, including edges, prior to installation.
    DL, or anybody watching, the paint to use for a primer is, KILZ Original Formula. It's in a white can, red letters, oil based, it does an excellent job sealing this stuff up.
    I did my shop with OSB, but used white metal roofing, actually liner panel, on the ceiling.
    Prepainted panels, installed, caulked seams, and final paint.
    Looks really good so far, what are you doing for a driveway, pave, concrete, gravel?
    Good luck with the rest of your project.

    Yes, the sheetrock needs to be primed before painting. Oil based Kilz works well.

    It's a waste of time pre-painting before install. Once it's up, tarp the floor, get the 5 gallon pails with a screen to reduce excess paint on a roller with an pole and roll away.

    I'm not talking prepainting sheetrock prior to installation, but prepainting OSB.

    I was planning on using sculpted Italian marble with gold inlay. I could be convinced to use Iridium inlay due to it’s corrosion resistance, but I haven’t used such in a practical application.

    Stay away from Italian, anything but Italian marble for driveways.

    Too much fuckery and no windows in the garage. From the M in machine and the M in main, make a line. House area left, garage right.

    Open up kitchen, living, dining for one area. 2 bedrooms don't need 3 bathrooms.
