Sheathing question

Patricia, if the Blackboard you're speaking of is a fibrous insulation board, it MAY have a slightly better insulating value, but it wouldn't be of great value, and it's definitely no comparison to the OSB for structural soundness. Because this is a mobile home, there may be some particular reason this was done, but I can't think of any besides cost savings for the builder.

If you specified a full OSB wrap, and they agreed, giving no reason why it wouldn't be done, I'd stand my ground on getting what I asked for.
