shallow box window

Recommended Posts

How do you guys recommend i build this first floor box window?

(it would only project 6" from face of brick, and bottom edge would not align with floor)

hint, using CA's 'box window' is not it...

 

Thanks!

OK... more specific questions to my window:

 

My situation is that I'm adding this box window to existing exterior walls. (can't really follow your new wall steps, Eric)

 

The 'attic' walls unintentionally continue up to roof above. (just want the box on one level)

Can my process be continued, some how bottom moved up, top moved down?

The walls will go up to a roof.  You need some type of roof to finish off the box.  On the bottom have you tried pony wall settings with say a 12" and a 6" thick wall set to align at outside surface?

That's just the way Chief works. Walls will extend to a roof above, so you need a roof plane over the bay.

What do you want that is different than what you have now.

 

What I quoted above sounds like the floor in the bay would be raised.

correct.  Ryan mentioned the use of pony walls to help create the window seat.

(...not getting my head around that)

You place a wall across the opening making the bay into a room of its own. You can then raise the floor in the room.

 

That wall could be a Pony Wall, exterior wall on bottom, interior on top. Place a Doorway or Pass Through in the top part.

Have you fully explored all the options in the window dbx - especially those on the Frame panel.

...btw, how do you nudge a third window up against two windows (that are either mulled or not)

 

as you can see from the interior view... it doesn't seem to matter which two, the first two work, the third one won't join.

Depends on what pediment corbling is.

You could probably use a frieze molding, otherwise yes.

yup, just a frieze was needed, thanks, Mark. (as well as that Min. Separation of 0)
