More Windows

While working on the tuck point (blog to come), we have been working on a handful of smaller projects. One of which was cutting in some windows. Up until this point, we had never framed a window into a wooden opening. We had only put windows into concrete openings. Once we figured out the first window, the second one went in pretty easily. We found our instructions online, so I’m not going to go into detail on how to do it. It is fairly straight forward although, just like everything else it comes with its own terminology – king studs, jack studs, cripples etc.
We are about 2/5 done with the tuck pointing, but I am taking pictures of each stage on one section of wall that isn’t done yet. We should be done with that soon and then I will relay the results.
