  1. To protect from excess moisture apply a vapor barrier to the wall
  2. Attach 3/4″ furring strips spaced over 16″ to the vapor barrier
  3. Starting at the bottom start the installation of siding by pre-drilling holes above each furring strip with a 1/8″ drill bit. If using Ipe Plugs use a 3/8″ drill bit to make a hole for each wood plug to fit into.
  4. To secure the bottom half of each board, drive a 3″ stainless steel screw through the 1/8″ pre-drilled hole.
  5. Predrill with a 1/8″ drill bit a hole through the narrow part of the siding that sticks out against the wall at the top of the board.
  6. Next, drive a 3″ stainless steel screw through the 1/8″ pre-drilled hole. Do not worry about plugging this hole since the next board you install will cover this fastener.
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 the above steps for the rest of the project.
