Really great project! Quick follow-on question about the siding - You used Hardi Panel - Rain-screen application - I assume you secured the panels to furring strips, and then did you use any trim profiles between the panels or at the top and bottom - or are they left open? Thanks!

Thanks for you compliment and question! This is an open rain-screen with no metal flashing at horizontal/vertical/corner joints. All the required flashings and waterproofing components are installed 'behind the screens' with the Vaproshield house wrap system. It seems a little counterintuitive to spend so much effort to 'close' a system designed around being open. Not to mention, it looks way better with the minimal gap reveals you get with the open installation. In my opinion, warranty concern is the main reason to consider the full-blown closed rain-screen application (and all the linear footage of flashing and vent strips that go with it).

Thanks for the quick and helpful response. 100% agree on the look for the open gap reveal with fiber cement panels. The trim applications look overly busy and typically lose the cleanness and simplicity of the panels. I'm a newly licensed architect and building a house for our family - first project using the panels and a rainscreen application. I'm looking to use Benjamin Obdyke FlatWrap HP as our housewrap and obviously flashing it up tight like you said - "behind the screens" (like that phrase...might have to borrow it! haha). Anyway - it will be an interesting experiment as we learn as we go! Any other Rookie tips you have to share - I'd totally appreciate it! Thanks again...and love your work....keep it up!
