Vinyl Siding and Roof for a shed

I'm building a shed and want to know if I should use underlayment for the vinyl siding(tyvek) and roof(roofing paper). The wall sheathing is 7/16 OSB and the roof sheathing is 1/2" plywood. For the walls, can I install the vinyl siding directly over the OSB? And for the roof, can I install asphalt shingles directly over the Plywood? Again it's for a shed so I don't need to go crazy, but I do want it to last!

Cost wise Id for sure cover the osb with just 15lb felt . Like we did years back then the vinyl.
Same thing on the roof the 15 Lb felt there. Is like a back up for the shingles.

I agree with Ed. Since it's a shed, use 15# felt, even under the siding.
