Rain Screen at inside corner detail

Salesi | Posted in General Questions on

Is there a drawing or detail that shows how the 1 x 3 or 1 x 4 rain screen is attached at an inside corner? If you have 1-1/2 foam insulation intersecting at an inside corner it will not leave enough room to attach the rain screen to the studs and therefore the siding will not have anything to be nailed to in the corner. Thanks for anyone’s help.

    Probably the simplest would be to put a stud on flat behind, should give you plenty of space, probably ends up 1/2 way behind the corner 1x4.

    You can also screw the 1x4s into the sheathing and anchor it into the corner stud with a galvanized angle and a couple screws at 45 degrees to hit the corner stud. I've used this for outside corners with heavy siding and it is very solid.
