Wall detail for vertical siding
I am building a 2-story cottage in NH. It is 2x6 framing on 24 inch centers. Covered with 1/2 sheathing grade plywood. Then covered with Tyvek (seams taped). I plan on covering this with 1 1/2 foam board, then using horizontal furring strips on 24 in centers fastened over the foam board into the wall studs.
I will then fasten 1x12 shiplap siding to the furring strips. This will also create an air space behind the siding to allow for moisture control. Any opinions on this detail would be much appreciated.
I have attached a copy of the detail that I downloaded from this site. I will be using the recommended detail to flash around all windows and doors. I think my main concern is the horizontal furring strips allowing for drainage past them. Thanks for your time.
