Framing Counter Height Windows
I am looking to frame out casement windows that will sit on the counter. They will be boxed out so that the counter extends into the window area.
My current house construction is 2x4 walls. I was looking to project the window out 6". I have seen pics with house framing that was 2x6 but I want to make sure that it would be the same with 2x4. There also is a soffit above the window area.
I want the windows to project out 6" so the plan would be to use 2x10's to picture frame the window. Install bottom piece then sides then top.
Assuming that is correct, I want to box out more of the exterior up to the soffit and around the window for trim and insulation.
This would give me room to add trim , as well as extra insulation around the window itself. I have only seen finished pics not ones during the framing stage so not sure how the outside framing was done around the picture framed 2x10's.
