Wall Types

Recommended Posts

I started drawing a floor plan last night using the 2 x 6/brick veneer wall type and noticed something I did not see before: There appears to be no provision for the sheathing on the exterior face of the studs (brick veneer side). Is this an oversight or intentional? Where I come from sheathing would be applied to the studs before the veneer. Do I need to manually update this and similar standard wall types:

VWA 1.01, OS 9.3.

I would not draw the interior finish at 1/4" or smaller plan drawings either. For the sake of industry/construction correctness I would think that both or neither should be deplected in the standard wall types... dimensioning to face of stud at requires a zoom so at not to hit the sheetrock. This is no big deal but I really would omit the interior rock.
