Where can I get the yellow mesh product in this picture or do you recommend anything else for the air gap?
You quoted an article (Mind the gap eh!) that has this product in it. When I google search, I cannot find it. Can you tell me the name of the product and where to purchase? I am starting my project his Monday.
I am not able to paste the picture here, but here is the link to the article from building science corporation.
Any other recommendations you have would be great. I am a home owner/teacher and these are my summer plans
project plan from inside out:
I have re-purposed rigid foam Insulation from a re-roofing job at the school I work at. 1.5" thick poly Iso with black paper on either side. Its in good shape. No water or mold.
step 1. Fill stud bays (2x4) from the outside while re-siding with James Hardie lap siding for existing part of home with the rigid foam. Plan to double them to the full thickness of the studs and backfil edges with a froth pack from Foam it Green.
Step 2. 7/16 OSB as per Hardie best practices
Step3. Tyvek Homewrap
Step 4. Rainscreen either 3/4" furring or 3/8" yellow mesh that I'm looking for in the orifginal question.
I prefer the air gap so I dont have to do all of the following:
- extend windows and trim inside
- extend service panel: would be costly as the supply line is to short.
Step 5. Trim boards and Hardie install.
Thanks in advance,

I live in an 1890 Victorian in Southern Pennsylvania, heated by oil. While I love radiators, I hate using fossil fuels! Is there a way to use green technology to use less oil? My methods to date have been uncomfortable - installing a wood stove,
