Garage walls with all drywall sheathing

Recommended Posts

We got a lot of restrictive weird fire code stuff in Chicago. Could be fire code related. We've done some jobs where we have to put on 3 layers of 5/8's on exterior walls to meet code.

That doesn't fly here in residential, just commercial.

Maybe it's just the local muni authority that prohibits it.

It's standard drywall with vinyl siding. There was a Tyvek MB. About 2007. I would think OSB or plywood would be needed somewhere at least for lateral bracing. There were no signs of structural problems.
