I installed some windows for a g.c I do work for,I didn't get a chance to measure myself so he did it.

When i get there I find the bathroom window like this:rolleyes:wall directly below was shot as well,so I built a new frame using pvc incorporating a sloped sill.

nothing fancy I know:laughing:..just some of the junk I been doing lately..

Looks fancy to me. Great job.

I love jobs like that, where what you're replacing is totally shot. Once the new window is installed it will look amazing.

Looks pretty nice as normal, but I really don't see much wrong with the old one, Nothing a little paint will not fix.:laughing:

I pretty much do complete replacements any more , much nicer job when done.

That's pretty nice. I don't have much experience replacing windows and the ones I bought for my own house are new construction. Figured since my old frames are rotted I needed to go that way. But this seems much smarter a solution.

So......you made a replica of the old pine frame and created a new PVC brick mold and sill? I have done this many a time. Although I usually just wrap the outside with aluminum.

Sometimes the effort costs as much as a full frame replacement but you save the trim out issues and maintain the look. Exterior casing dresses it up nice.

was a tub wall window,I didn't want any wood.

I glued on all the stops so there are no exposed fastener to fill or rust,i'll get some install pics,just going to cortex thru the casing,I added some small angles to the bottom of the sloped sill to make shimming easier

Tommy that's over the top:thumbsup:. I reno'd on an old farm house a few years ago. 59 windows and 37 doors. All made with custom df 3x12 sills angled , drip edge. Come to think of the big Domino would of been nice. really satisfying to make all custom sills and windows inserted in 2ft stone wall.
