Should you use furring strips under Hardie siding?
I plan to build a home with 1.5″ exterior rigid foam insulation and Hardie lap siding. Should I use furring strips to create “the gap” or just nail the Hardie siding directly through the foam? If furring strips are the answer, what specific material should be used for these strips?
