A different way to make vented siding.
Two layers of 3/8-in. plywood strips in a cross-hatch pattern make a drainage space and provide backing for the cedar shingles that will be installed here.
Lots of corners to detail.
The jog in the wall shows where the double-wide overhead door was. The window cantilevers over the newly framed wall.

Before shingles were installed. You can see the 2 in. layer of XPS foam and the cross-hatched furring.

Would we do this furring detail again? Probably not -- we think a drainage matt may have been quicker.

Fiber cement siding below, maranti water-table, and cedar shingles will go above. The inside corners, outside corners, cantilever, and multi-siding types complicated detailing here, but made it an excellent wall to use for gauging how difficult it is to install rigid foam with furring strips and siding.
