Canít Find the Studs Behind Hardy Plank Siding

I am having some difficulty trying to find studs behind Hardy Plank siding. I have tried a couple of different electronic stud finders but none seem to find the studs.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Thanks.

Find Studs

Find studs from the inside and carefully measure from the outside allowing for wall thickness of adjacent wall.

Try to find one close to a window inside. Measure it to a spot on window edge. Make sure if studs are 16 or 24 inch on center, Go outside and measure it out.

Thanks Wirepuller38. Started by trying that but couldn't find them on the inside of the wall with plywood over them.

Any other ideas?

You have plywood on the interior walls?

Studs Behind Hardy Plank

Any chance the Hardy Plank is nailed on the studs? If so, find the nails and you have found the studs.

Wirepuller, most hardieplank is blind nailed... thus the problem with finding the studs.

Best bet is to look for the spot where 2 butt joints meet in the field. That should be directly over a stud.

Finding the stud inside and measuring to the daylight opening of a window, then transferring that measurement outside should have worked by now.
