I am going to side over a log home. Some of the logs are deteriorated and the maintenance has not been done for years but for the most part the logs are solid. I want to fur out the logs with 1 x 4 pine furring strips and attach the CertainTeed CedarBoard insulated siding over the furring strips. There would be a air gap in-between the furring strips and at the bottom of the wall.
Does anyone have experience with this type of project or can anyone give proper installation over the logs? The logs are to uneven to sheet over directly so it is going to have to be furred out.
Should I install a vapor barrier over the logs or allow the logs to breath as described above?
Any help greatly appreciated. Just trying to keep from having to remove the logs if possible.
