The Fine Homebuilding editors explain why laying out furring strips for shingles and clapboards on their garage shop was such a challenge
Rain-screen details help your siding, and the wall beneath it, last longer by creating a ventilation and drainage space behind the siding. In this episode of the Project House weekly wrap-up, Fine Homebuilding editors Dan Morrison and Justin Fink explain how installing siding over furring strips isn't that difficult-until you come to the corners. Because the Project House garage shop has a lot of corners, Justin and his crew have plenty of opportunites to show you how to work around them.
