Flashing window head casing


I am installing a couple of new construction vinyl windows with an integral flange. I am installing 5/4x4 wood casing all around the window.

The window flashing seems pretty straight forward except how to deal with the head casing. At first, I thought I would lap the house wrap over the top flange of the window and tape it with self-adhered tape. But then how do I get the z cap flashing that sits above the wood head trim under the house wrap? Hope that description makes some sense...

Thanks for any advice!

The housewrap goes over the top of both the flashing and the window flange.

Concidered using PVC wood grain 1 X 4 lumber instead of wood?
No more rot, can be painted if needed.

Thanks for the replies... So I basically slot the house wrap just above the trim?

I looked at pvc trim, but it seems cost prohibitive. I may end up using Hardi trim.

That would be correct.
