"I once added foam to the outside of an old house that was sheathed with some sort of fuzz board. The house was much more comfortable afterward, especially in the summer."

How did you do deal with the trimming around the windows and doors? That is where I'm stuck at right now. Planning on using Tyvek as an air barrier and taping all of the seams and flashing everything heavily then putting 2in poly-iso over the top of that, siding on top of that with furring strips. I was planning on the windows being installed in the plane with the existing wall sheathing instead of jacking them out to the (new) siding. But that leaves me trimming out the areas around the windows (on the outside) to try to cover up the foam.
