It must be serendipity that I listed to this week's podcast as I too am facing a stepped foundation/siding detail as I write this. I am dealing with sheathing, Cor-A-Vent rain screen and 5/16" Hardie Panel siding. As I too have copper flashing details throughout this project, I will be installing a copper angle over the Cor-A-Vent to cover it and the sheathing. The Hardie panel will overlap the copper by about to 1/2" to create a shadow line (typical of all of the horizontal conditions).
Those HardiePanel instructions are both confusing and contradictory. It is interesting that they illustrate both installation with and without sheathing underneath the product. As I am contemplating installing this product on my own home in the near future it seems as I need to get someone on the phone to discuss my proposed design details...
Overdriven fasteners are very apparent in this video. I think you should resist the impulse to "Just to get the content up" and spend a little more time on quality. Nothing "Fine" about this "Fine Homebuilding" video.
Shellac-base primer is best cleaned from tools and hands with a diluted solution of household ammonia. Says so right there on the can... Next time RTFM.
