Fastening vertical pine lap siding over rainscreen — horizontal nailers?
I am having a hard time satisfying all our intentions in this scenario and would appreciate some timely advice.(ASAP :) If there are some available drawn details to point me to that would be much appreciated. We are are in climate zone 5A.
5.5" of Icynene insulation, will be sprayed in.
7/16 Zip wall sheathing
Tyvek - (taped with the small folds. We think its useless and have nicknamed it 'wrinklewrap')
Marvin aluminum clad windows.
Assuming we want the windows nailing fin on-top of but taped/lapped to the WRB.
How do I do the window flashing at bottom of the window sill and how do I not penetrate all the WRB with nails on the horizontal runs without doing first a vertical 1" and then a horizontal 1.5" to hold off the nails?
I was going to do 4' and 32" lengths of 3/4" horizontal furring leaving spaces for airflow going up the wall. Space at top and bottom (with bug screen).
Lastly I was originally hoping to add a layer of 1" ridged insulation, a thermal break and then do the furring but now I think that is just adding to this problem.
