Vinyl Siding Over Wood, Double Vapor Barriers, and Windows..oh my


Looks normal in that picture, go back and look at the first picture of the house you posted, see how that over hang looks like it's at an angle.
Most have just been the angle the picture was taken.

simply cutting back the shingles to create an overhang does a sloppy job. its much stronger by resheathing the roof and creating the overhang that way

Sorry about that bad first picture. Anyway, thamks for the advice, but the link you posted won't work for me. So if I went with no foam insulation, would Gary's idea with the stucco wrap work?

I'd just wrap it with Tyvek and side it.
But first I would remove the gutters, remove the plywood covering the soffits and use vented vinyl soffit, then wrap the fashias with coil stock.
Then there would be no painting and plenty of ventalation.
All the rim gets done first before the siding goes up.

One of my fingers fell off so I made a booboo.
Should have been trim not rim.

I hope you do not plan on trying to do any of this work this time of year up there.
The siding would shatter like glass when you go to cut it.

Haha no, not doing this until spring. Do you think the stucco wrap would be better than just tyvek? Also, how would I tie it into the windows to prevent leaks?
