    <<  The existing exterior walls are sheathed with "Asphalt Impregnated Fiber Board".  Does anyone know what this is?  >>
 
This material is made from shredded sugarcane stalks and was used on many residences heah in the deep South.  I always heard it referred to as "nigger board".  Pieces of this material were used to start the early morning warming fires at a job site.  It has some insulating value but very little shear value.
