How do I create trim for windows with built up molding for top/bottom

Recommended Posts

I have windows that will be dressed with a build up of 4 pieces of molding across the top, 3 pieces at the bottom and then the side will be using 1 piece.

How can I create a schedule for the various molding pieces?

Most but not all windows will use the same molding (2 window walls wont)

 

Outside trim will be very similar, but different molding.

 

Thanks

Personally, I would make a section cut detail of the window/trim sections and then reference to that section. 

 

Here is an example of a little detail I place in plans (although these are "base" versions, I typically detail out more specific information based upon plan).  I've even had complex build-ups detailed in a larger scale adjacent to these.

I am also looking for the feet needed of each profile. I am surprised to find out there is not a schedule for trim! But is there a workaround?

 

 

Thanks
