Oriented Strand Board covered with Tyvek, or fanfold insulation.

Mouth

I used 1X4 fir, 12" apart on the cabin I built in 1973. No leaks so far...

Larry, there's no acceptable evidence backing your assertion that "You can't listen with your mouth open". Persons with nasal blockage do it quite often.

You weren't "listening", when you posted about the listening matter. He never used the words "mouth (OPEN)".

Alberti: I don't understand your statement about OSB being discontinued. When properly installed it is a great underlayment, and relatively inexpensive (unless we have a hurricane). As the others posted, more expensive materials are better, but as industry standards, OSB is quite fine.

this is how my house is sheathed.....
my question..
is it necessary to use furring strips?

i've seen several homes with the shingles/shakes nailed directly over the Tyvek.
