Boxed out gable vent

Recommended Posts

I have tried several ways to box out the gable vents (see attached) and figured there must be an easier way to do this.

When using a solid, I was unable to place a gable vent on the surface.

A boxed window wouldn't go on a gable wall. And exterior wall insisted on repositioning itself at floor level.

What is the secret?

Thanks

Is the vent located on the wall and the box protrudes, or is the vent forward of the wall?

This is a window set to louvered. Thick frame with a negative offset. Casing is a molding profile from my library (not normally used for this).

How could it get any quicker?  Its just a window with the proper settings.
