With Jarvis Builders doing "The Complete Job" including Excavation this
wasn't a problem. If you had a Pole Barn Builder and a separate Excavator
you'd have to coordinate this and usually that is where problems begin.

The 7/16" OSB Wall Sheathing will be covered with House Wrap before the Windows, Doors, and Exterior Steel Siding Finish is Installed. Steel Siding is an Economical, Durable, and Attractive Siding, however installed directly over the frame without this sheathing & Wrap it would be very
leaky. Installing the Wall Sheathing & House Wrap before the Steel Siding makes this a whole different Building. It will be Tight with very little Air Infiltration through the wall. This Pole Barn will be much easier to Heat & Cool.

If your building a Tool Shed or a Non-Heated Barn OSB Wall Sheathing
under your Steel Siding will give you a Tougher Interior Wall Surface
