Dear Mr. Holladay,
Thank you very much.
Will option 1 (the spacers attached to studs creating the air gap) also be advised for stucco with no sheathing and no WRB? I think that the answer is yes.
I live in San Mateo County, California which is a climate zone 3-marine. My thoughts are to move forward with option 1; also, I am thinking to add an interior "smart" vapor retarder (not required for climate zone 3 but is required for climate 4-marine). FYI - the house was built in 1946.
