i personally like 6 " o.c.. more to nail baseboard, crown and chair rail to without using glue to the wall.

plus i love the look on the insulators face when they realize they gotta cut 2 million strips at 4.5 "

if its a 2x6 wall, i would go 24 personally. as for a 2x4 wall, it'd be ok too. just make sure to use 5/8 drywall.

If the inspectors won't do a variance to allow it, putting a flat 2x4 between the 2' cntrs, on the interior side might allow it to pass. If not, it's jack up the roof, & put new walls under it!

Re: Framer Put 24 O.c Instead Of 16 O.c On Most Exterior Walls


Contractor I subbed from told a customer we'd put his garden shed up with a stud every 12". Because someone was concerned that the hardiplank on the outside would show waves at 16" oc. (with 7/16 osb too! What wave?). But he forgot to tell me. I framed it 16 oc. He bought more studs and told me to add one in every bay. That guy has a garden shed built 8" oc. I didn't have enough siding nails, so I only nailed the Hardi plank to every other stud. Looks fine from the outside. Looks like solid wood from the inside.
