Window Recessed to Exterior Brick Layer

Recommended Posts

I've got some really thick walls where the windows (replacement type) have no jambs (drywall inside).  The windows are situated near the brick on the exterior.  Is there any way to move the windows in this direction - images attached.  Have tried recessing to main layer and sheathing - nothing moves the sashes.  Thanks, Kevin

"...nothing moves the sashes."

 

Have you tried changing the Sash Inset?

Thanks Eric.  I didn't know that was possible.   I removed the jambs as there really aren't any.  I guess you painted the jambs to match the drywall?

No. Look again at the settings.

 

You need a frame to contain the sash. You can move the frame within the wall and you can move the sash within the frame.
