Detailing for inset windows when using vertical siding
I tried conjuring an answer from the archives but ran out of breath: there were several threads with vertical siding but the windows were face mounted.
I’m looking on best practices for detailing recessed windows when using vertical siding. More accurately, the detailing of the outer edges where the openings and siding planes are to meet.
I can kind of guess but I don’t want to throw myself out into the weeds.
I’m NOT set on vertical siding (I’ll have this discussion with an architect; but in my mind, which has a fair sense of aesthetics, vertical siding seems to be the right call [I’ll also have to have this discussion with my wallet!]). I’ve thought about metal siding and then dismissed it, but have once again ruled it on the table.
Not sure that it’s the same issue with doors as they have their frames which would get set to meet up with the plane of the siding.
And though slightly different, what about mounting blocks? (these seem to be more straightforward to me, but would appreciate any pointers that could lessen any pains here).
