waterproofing shed wall from interior

I'm working on making a wall in my shed waterproof. I canít (or donít want to) access the exterior of 'problem wall' because it borders on an ill-tempered neighbor's property. So I'd prefer to just deal with the issue from the interior if possible. A number of the holes in the wood are too large for caulking, and as I have some plywood lying around, I was thinking of gluing or nailing the plywood to the interior of the siding to block up the holes. Does adding the plywood seem logical or is there a better way to proceed? Iím trying to do this in an economical way.

Thanks!!

That should do ok. I'd add some caulking to seal it as you secure the repair pieces. It really should be addressed from the outside. Is the bldg right on the property line?

Yes, the shed is right on the property line. Thanks for the response.

Address the problems from the exterior some time when the neighbor is not around.
