I have a home where I have discovered a majority of my walls are made up of Douglas fir strips of an approximate size of 1 x 2¼. There are some 2 x 2s here and there as well. No plaster. No 2x4. Most of the walls upon taking the gypsum casing that had them feel rigid will wiggle like a tarp would were your to flap it up and down..

Any one ever seen this?

Sounds like you’ve discovered a barge board house. There are probably vertical 1x12’s on the exterior and horizontal members on the interior.
