Question

What to do with windows when firring out from a block wall.


I have recently added an addition to my block home. I did not however add a block addition. I would like my house to match and want to cover the block with siding. My question is what do I do with the windows in my block home? I will be furing out 3/4 of an inch and then sheeting with 7/16 osb. This will cause my windows to be "recessed" so to speak and Block windows dont have a nail strip. So I am seeking what I should do.

Thanks
