new guy here. I am hoping you guys can help. We had a 2x6 built Wisconsin Homes modular placed on top of an ICF basement. Then, we had vertical vinyl board and batten siding installed, it was run down so the J Channel sits a half inch below the sheeting. This left the sill plate exposed.
The concrete contractor ran mel-rol waterproofing up to the top of the ICF. This shouldn't be exposed above grade, so my plan is to peel down the waterproofing barrier and cut it off to remove it before applying sticky mesh and synthetic stucco where the foundation will sit above grade.
My question is, how the heck do I hide the sill plate tastefully?
I contacted styro industries, the makers of Tuff II and FlexCoat synthetic stucco and they don't recommend covering the sill with this product.
I thought about running 1x4x16' lp trim board all around and nailing them to the sill then stucco below that, but not sure if that is a good idea or if there's a more economical solution?
Also, should I coat the bottom of the sheeting boards with something, rather than leave them exposed? See pics for reference.
