Fasten hand-rail to the house!


I plan to install deck hand-rails and need to attach one end to the house!
The house is older and the walls were sheeted with 1X8 ship-lap!
Cedar clap-board was nailed to this! Then, at a later date the house was re-sided with aluminum clap siding! No furring strips!
At the point where the rail meets the house, there is not a wall stud. Its in the area of the stud cavity!
I'm considering cutting through the aluminum and the cedar with a hole saw, slipping in a metal sleeve, cut to a length that would have it project out from the surface of the aluminum.
Then I would mount a PT 2X6 with lag screws, through the sleeves, and into the shiplap sheeting!
Is there a better way to do this, or will this method be acceptable!

just screw the thing to the house with some deck mates screws(toenail like)
run some silicone on the thread of the screws to seal out water
