Rain-Screen-Siding Details for Gable Ends

Q: Your recent article on rain-screen siding(FHB #213) was very well done. One thing that your article did not cover, however, was gable walls, which present challenges when using lap siding, such as clapboards. The pieces of siding cut to the angle of the roof often miss the furring strips installed on 16-in. centers. How do you vent the assembly while providing nailing for the ends of the siding?
