Pick this outie window detail idea apart
We’re planning a build with 3″ of Comfortboard to the exterior. of the sheathing. The great debate of how to detail the windows has reared its ugly head. Innie? Outie? where’s the WRB? I’m in Canada (ZONE 6), so there’s also the default assumption of 6mil poly.
Windows have already been ordered and will have nailing fins.
I’ve read all the posts on here regarding innie/outie, where should the WRB go, etc., but it’s a lot to ingest – this prelim detail was a suggestions from the architect for how to solve the problem.
Hoping to get some feedback on a proposed window buck for outie windows. Tell me what you think.
