Thank you, Neil.

I thought you would enjoy my "huh?" comment.

I like "huh"; but from the APA Advanced Construction Guide:

/"   Advanced framing with 2x6 wood studs spaced 24 inches on center,
combined with wood structural panel sheathing, is one of the most cost- 
effective solutions for builders trying to balance increasingly energy 
codes with structural building code requirements.

Advanced framing is a system of framing is a system of framing based on 
optimizing building materials to produce wood-framed buildings with lower 
material and labor costs than conventionally framed structures.  Builders 
who utilize advanced framing techniques optimize framing material usage, 
reduce wood waste and, with effective insulation detailing, boost the 
building's efficiency to meet today's energy code requirements. _*When 
properly designed*_ and constructed, advanced framed walls that are fully 
sheathed with wood structural panels, such as plywood or orientated strand 
board (OSB), provide the structural strength necessary to safely withstand 
the forces of nature." / You can get this guide from here:
