how should i seal this window ?


see the first pic. that is my sheathing and siding. the sheathing slots have some type of mortar filling the slots. not an ideal situation, when looking to seal.

2nd pic is the window in its new home. but not completely installed.

now. sealing the window to the sheathing. can i use coil stock ? or, that sealing tape that menards has ?

my plan is to use boards that i already have, and cut them to fit(as seen in the 2nd pic) then caulk & paint.
then, sometime in the next year, all new siding over all of this.

btw, the brown boards you see. that is where i had to frame out from the old window.

Looks like Plaster & Lathe to me.

yeah it does, on the outside. the inside it looks just like regular tongue & groove.

anyway. my issue is that there is no house wrap of any kind. and because a few pieces of the mortar have fallen out, its not completely smooth. but it is pretty flat.

What's the grand plan to do with that siding. It sure looks like old asbestos siding that's no longer made.

No nailing fin on the window?

the plan is to put foam board right over the top of it. then whatever siding i choose. so i don't much care how what i am doing now looks, as i will be going right over it someday. but i do need it to function well.

yes, they do have fins, new construction. the boards covering them, i just threw them up there for a little protection, until i have this resolved. you can see the bottom fin on the cedar. that cedar is there to take up the space as sheathing.
that is not the planned finish.
