Ivy Hollow - windows, a second look

by brae  

I'm using Houseworks attic windows for my tiny post office. They have interior trim that fits around the frame.

After seeing one in dry fit, it all seemed out of proportion.

Here's an interior window with the trim pulled in closer. It sits on top of the frame instead of surrounding it.

I had padded the exterior of the attic windows to make up for some of the difference in depth, and I couldn't add more without throwing the proportion off on the outside.

That left padding the walls on the inside. I needed only 1/16" thick material to make the walls flush with the windows, so I bought chip board sheets as an economical solution.

I cut new interior trim, eliminating the angled corners that are often hard to cut by hand. Better. :]

Looks like that’s going to work well :)

Dry fitting is certainly a must for a good fit. You have very clean lines with perfect--perfect everything.
