Our house foundation is partly cinderblock and partly ash/stone compacted and mixed with cement I think. This is in Northeastern PA. I figure I can put a wood frame on the foundation and attach hardie panels with non-rusting screws and caulk all seams and holes and put an insulating/vapor barrier between the foundation and the panel. How deep into the ground should I go? Should the hardie panel go an inch or two below ground level or a foot? Or not at all? Any ideas?
