Siding - water shielding corners


Is it necessary to use a membrane (like Vycor) under the cornerboards and inside corners or will house wrap be adequate?
If so, what is the order of the layers... house wrap, membrane, cornerboard?

30 lb. ASTM felt everywhere is all you need.

Don’t cut off at corners, wrap around.

Thanks, I've already got Tyvek up, so I guess I can skip the membrane. I wasn't sure if I needed additional waterproofedness at the corners.

i always install metal flashing to all inside and outside corners,depending on the corner width and weather exposure this could be anywhere from a 4x4 up to a 12x12
