Green Building Q&A: Sealed rigid foam board good enough drainage plane?

Green Building Q&A: Sealed rigid foam board good enough drainage plane?

OK, I need your thoughts on this. I'm at home for a few weeks and I forgot to bring home my reference material for drainage planes from work. I'm tearing off old 90 year old siding and 15 # felt and replacing it with 1" rigid foam and fiber cement board siding. I'm doing one side of my house per year.

I realize I'll have to pay great attention to all seams, but it would be a lot less work if I could put the foam directly on the underlayment sheathing.
