Exterior insulation window detail example.
Please help! My build begins next week and I will be wrapping my house in 2.5″ exterior insulation held on with 1×4 furring strips. I may finish with vinyl, James Hardie, or similar product.
I have 2×6 walls and my sheathing will act as the air & WRB. I have flangeless triple pane windows, but I’m having difficulty understanding how to detail the exterior side of the window with the exterior insulation. I was unable to find an architect in my area willing to design this detail for me.
I understand there are various methods, but I am really hoping that a few of you could attach some sample detail drawing snippets of some details for reference.
