My victorian home in New Brunswick,Eastern Canada has one side where the wood 1X6" clap boarding was replaced years ago by a type of wide masonite clapboard that does'nt match and is in terrible repair,I want to replace it with matching wood siding,my question,once its off and down to the sheathing (random width rough 1 inch boards) before I reinstall...might as well house wrap it right? with Tyvek.Will I have to strap it first to leave an air space?if I do it will be built out so far as to interfere with gingerbread etc,unless I tear off the sheathing and install thinner plywood or aspenite,whic means more time,labour and of course money?anything wrong with just wrapping and putting siding right over?I'm already vapour barriored from the inside.Its just that I've read that tyvek is selectively permeable which means it lets moisture out of the home but this moisture needs a space to disapate.
