Buck Window Using One Wall One Window, Chiefarchitect Tips

Recommended Posts

Here is one way to do deep inset windows using chief, the plan attached is enough to understand it, a little play on frame and sash settings.

Thanks.

Yusuf,

 

That solution I presented a long time ago.  Scott doesn't like it.

Yusuf,

That solution I presented a long time ago. Scott doesn't like it.

I don't think so.

Scott was right refusing that method! That method was rejected because the dry wall material was appearing outside the window plus no visible inset casing was there either. And he posted his E-mail with Brian in the last talk as you know. Rather you are right regarding the unjustifiable refusal of Scott to one solution and again liking it the other day. I think the reason, he some times responds before he sees the issue deeply as you did now.

For your surprise I have posted this method of mine with more accurate frame a long long time ago and he refused simply because the siding wasn't stucco! I am not kidding may be you were, and I can post the link to that one if needed. I don't want talk about it because the issue is solved for now and may be he will not like it again. And any who likes it will use it...... That is it Joe.

Thanks Joe

Yusuf, This is a pic from your Plan. All I did was change the the Frame to 4" with a 6" recess. Now the Drywall (green) shows. This is the exact same solution that I had.

See Post #11 in https://chieftalk.chiefarchitect.com/index.php?/topic/5101-will-somebody-help-me-with-this-bucking-plan/

I see it Joe, he shouldn refuse it. But he also refused my method which is the one on the right side. The same(6" inset fd 4") You judge it! which one was the best? He applauded for Perry's fairly nice work rejecting the joes good work and yusuf's excellent one!

      I design for a builder who uses concrete walls (Ritek). The builder wants the plans to show the window size correctly with the cutout 40mm larger all round. I see you can do this with stem walls. Is there a work around for normal walls? Doors are ok, I just make the jamb 40mm wide. This doesn’t seem to work for windows. The wall manufacturer wants to read my cad files, measuring the rough openings.  Any suggestions would be great, thanks

      I need to draw a greenhouse window in an as-built drawing such as in the attached photo. The Bay or Box window doesn't work as it   places walls under the three windows.  If there is a symbol out there I can't find it.  Anyone run across this.
       
      Thanks

      I have a window arrangement that has a space between them and would like to get the inside to look good with the casing so I can render it. Of course I can mull the trapezoid and one casement but cannot add the other due to the distance. Is there a work around for this?

      Any window opening in a masonry wall usually requires an angle iron lintel.  That seems to be a problem for CA.  Although there is a lintel option for windows, you have to do the lintel manually or create a profile for it.  The lintel doesn't show up correctly in the window schedule if it is an angle, i.e. 3 1/2 x 4 x 1/4 LLV (long leg vertical.)
       
      Does anyone have a workaround?

      Hi I am trying to create a window well for a basement. I have seen a training video in the past from Chief Architect. I tried searching for it and could not find it. Any help is much appreciated
      Thank you
