Input for top of window elevation.

jwillis96March 17, 2012

We are building a new home with 9'-1" ceiling height and I trying to come up with a good top of window elevation..I am thinking adding a 12" transom to 6'-8" door would put me at 7'-8" for the top of the windows, this would also allow plenty of room for 5" window trim and crown molding ...Our designer is suggesting 8'-0" for the tops of the windows...Any thoughts or insight would be greatly appreciated..

How tall are the windows? At what height do you want the sill to be at from the floor? Tops don't necessarily need to aline. We did this once and had to reframe so all the bottoms lined up... what a pain.
