Question:


my cabin leaks every time it rains, I was wondering the proper way to put siding over it. do you tyvek first strap it then siding, and do you need to vent this air space. There is no building inspecters or any one in my area to ask. Could you please help me out.

Answer:

You should put the tyvek on then fir strip. You will have a natural air space behind the fir stripping. Caulk from top to bottom with Energy Seal caulk. Do not fill with foam.
