Do you have a sketch or section drawing that shows the typical detailing  
that is currently used by you and/or in parts of Europe where you have  
worked or visited ?

In particular, I'd be interested in seeing details to ensure continuity of  
the air barrier at the interior and flashing details at the exterior,  
around door and window openings.

That would give me a starting point when considering suggestions to offer.
As it is, I have no idea of current Euro-practise in this area.

Ideally, the sketches would be made available on the web so that others  
can participate in the discussion.

Feel free to use the file-sharing functions of the SB-r-Us yahoogroup if  
that would be easiest.
