One thing to keep in mind is that OSB has a tendency to come apart fairly quickly when it gets wet... obviously not in a day or a week, but it won't last as many years as some other choices in lumber. One thing you can do to make it last longer is to coat it with melted wax and let the wax seep in as much as possible.
