I specified 3/8" ply on some of my jobs when I started my practice about seven years ago. I was relatively new to wood frame construction. After I saw a few panels at site, I stopped specifying 3/8" ply. I fail to understand the economics on residential remodels. I agree with Hirsh. 730 plf shear? 3/8" plywood? 2" nail spacing? No way!!! Anand Nene, S. E.
