Flush and extra wide window sill in front of sink
I have seen this in thegoose's kitchen in the "4 inch granite backsplash AND tile?" thread and in Eileen3g's kitchen in the FKB. There is a window in front of the sink that is flush with the countertop and seems to stick out further than a regular window could.
Does anyone have these? How do you make this? It is not a garden window, but is it a special window?
Do I just make the frame stick out further than the side of the house outside (this is a possibility right now, since we are down to the studs at the moment)?
What kind of windows work best for this (I would prefer a wood window to match the rest of the windows , which are all painted non-white inside and out, but any suggestions welcome.
Does anybody have these? Did you have any problems with moisture under cabinets or anything else? Did you have problems with the counter installation? (Our counters will be soapstone, so extra seems are not that big of a deal, I hear).
Anything else I may have not thought about that is worth considering?
Thanks in advance!
