Door and Window openings

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have opnings like this where the wall is angled as shown in the photos below?  The walls are specified as 24" solid stone.  Thank you for any help.  ~Rayna

I have the same question as I have some thick splayed stone walls also. I have not figured out how to do it. Would love to see if anyone does. Thanks!

Furred wall inside, no casings, no sill, no lintel, 3D molding to emulate angled wall returns all around.  Multiple moldings if you want different angles at head and sill than at sides.

 

It is a thing sometimes done when walls are ICF.  You build the ICF wall with the window opening larger than the window, maybe 12 inches all sides.  You frame inside that opening for the smaller window, with 2x6 framing.  Then detail out with framing for the angled-in wall returns, and sheetrock all.  Castle-like, no?

For me we have historical stone homes that have splayed window openings. Sometimes 12-24" thick walls and splayed sides, sometimes arch top but sometimes flat top and splayed sides only to the interior.

For all-stone or framed, the application is the same.  Two walls, the furred one inside is the one with the splayed treatment, done with the moldings.  Try it with an outer wall, one main layer, stone, 8 inches thick.  Inner wall that smacks up to it, one main layer, all stone, 16 inches thick.  Pass-thru on the inner wall, centered on your window, raise its head and lower your sill as needed, adjust width as you want, uncheck all for the pass-thru so there is no frame, no casing, etc., and then do the molding work.

 

Have you tried it?  CAD detail from view will be your friend to get those molding lines exactly right.  Show us your results!
