this is a technical detail - your architect should be able to design it for you. typically metal is attached with metal clips to a wood sub structure. thanks!

we used a 'rain screen' system on this house. siding is installed over 3/4" furring strips (spacers) so that there is an open air ventilation channel behind the siding. this equalizes pressue and allows any water that gets behind the siding to dry rapidly prohibiting mold growth.

Beautiful elevation. Thank you very much. 'Not sure how the rain screen design would work in a climate like Washington, DC

Actually - there is no stain on the wood at all - it is intended to weather and color on its own. Thanks for your question! --- Coates Design
