I've read about this but am not sure of the exact methodology for creating the furring-to-wrap connection. I'm not good with origami. :lol: Pictures would help.

For my immediate requirements I need to reattach the belly wrap to the rim joist along a 15' section. I will try and make do with multiple, short furring strips that I have on-hand. The edge of the belly wrap is all intact, complete with the original excess material which was folded over/under. Not sure, if it's how it's to be done, that I'd be able to staple the material to the furring strips in mid air (the edge is free and hanging down).

Staples & strips will work just fine.
