Does my shed need house wrap?

Post by Cocophone » Fri Sep 06, 2019 12:14 pm

I live in Oregon, USA and I'm building a 10' x 12' shed on a concrete slab. Should I wrap it with house wrap before I side it with plywood T‑111 siding? The shed will not be insulated.

You can if you want to, but it isn't necessary on a structure with no insulation, drywall, or HVAC.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

ya house wrap is more for situation where you have exterior finish products over top of wood sheathing. You are protecting that sheathing from moisture and helping control air a bit.
In your case its really serves no purpose.
