Installing new vinyl windows w/ foam&siding


Hello all! I'm about to install new windows, siding w/ house wrap and 1" foam. The windows that I currently have installed are wooden sliders which have been leaking. I'm going to be replacing some of the plywood and re-frame as I suspect the 2x6's have rotted out.
My first question is the order in which I will be doing the work. Am I wrong in my thinking that it will be..

Remove windows/siding
Re-box
House wrap
foam
new windows
siding

Also I was wondering what I should do about the 1" of foam bringing the windows away from the plywood? Would my best bet to be to add some form of 1" strapping around the box to bring it out flush with the foam before I install the windows?
Thanks in advance

Yep I knew that much. Still wondering if the order I posted is correct and the proper way to bring the windows flush with the foam though.

ok if your going to bring the windows out flush with the foam,use the strapping,in that case i would install the foam first then housewrap over that
