Angeled Entry Alcove

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I am struggling with how to build a stacked alcove: one for the entry door and the other for a window.

 

I've tried a slopped soffit to no avail.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Kind regards, Tamela

I used a molding to do this one.

You might experiment with using a wedge shape molding as your casing.

 

It's difficult to tell from the PDF what it's supposed to look like.

Bummer, didn't work the way I needed it to.

 

The depth is 36" inches surrounding the door.

 

Reference the pdf, lower right corner, SEC A, shows the cut view. Door on bottom, window above it.

 

Kind regards, Tamela

Pretty sure I would just use a ceiling plane. That's really what it is anyway right?

Thanks again for everyones help.

 

I rebuilt the tower from the second floor (too high in my opinion but thats what the architect sent) using an invisible wall.

 

Then I used SOLVER's advice on window moulding for the tower window.

 

Used the wedge shape to fit over door creating top inset/slope in the alcove.

 

Thankfully, this is not a project I need to produce construction plans!

 

Sincere appreciation!

Tamela
