Tyvek Placement ?


Hello:
Is Tyvek normally placed between the house studs and the Plywood, or between the Plywood and the wood exterior clapboards ?
Does it matter ? Why ?
Thanks, B.

Robert,
Between the plywood sheathing and the clapboards. Tyvek will protect the home from air infiltration and wind blown water when done like this.
