No Sheathing experiment.

Experimenting with no sheathing on tiny house to save money and time. 16x28 single story. Only planning on living there a couple years so Iím not building something to last a hundred years.
I did house wrap over my 2x4 studs, then strapping every two feet, then 1x10 boards going vertical.
Does it need some corner bracing?
Will it structurally hold up to wind this winter?

I live in Southern Maine. I donít intend on adding any siding on top of what Iíve already described. Strapping going horizontal across studs with 1x10 boards going vertical on strapping with silicone caulk between.

With no sheathing you want to use t-bracing, which is let into a saw kerf in the studs and then is double nailed to each stud. The mice might enjoy it so be sure you don't leave any gaps. Silicone isn't what you want to use if you intend to paint.

That is why you need sheathing.
