windows trim with board and batten sidings


I have Milard vinyl windows installed. The edge of the window is at 1.5 inches from the exterior plywood. Now I would like to install a board and batten sidings with trim around windows. Being in BC, Canada I have to respect the rain screen requirements (1/2 inch space between plywood and the siding). The thickness of the siding wood is 15/16''. Any suggestions how to do this?
Thank you.

Hey, did you ever figure this out? I'm doing pretty much the same thing and am having difficulty figuring out the window trim.

Thanks, Peter

Hi Peter, I did not g et any reply to my question. In the mean time I go for a reverse - batten and board version. Battens are milled at 0.5" so they fit in the rain screen. Boards go on the top. Officially asked - this is compliant. The total thickness is 1.5" which is what I need. I hope this help you. Regards Zdenek
