For housewrap to work correctly, it need to be continuous and lapped to drain water away. In this video, remodeler and Fine Homebuilding editor Justin Fink shows how to plan ahead so you get your inside corners tight when wrapping a new wall.

MikeGuertin MikeGuertin writes: There is a benefit to Justin's inside corner wrapping method; he essentially double layers the housewrap at a vulnerable location. When siding butts an inside cornerboard, there's an open gap. Caulking isn't a long-term solution but the double layer helps resist water leaks.

And Justin selected his block well. Unlike some framing lumber that has radically eased edges, his has a nearly crisp corner - important to avoid a void.
