Wed 5-1

Old LR window opening (RO=rough opening) framed out for a much larger window unit...

Outside view

Oh so lovely inside view!

New header added to support the load. Did you notice the thicker now 2x6 walls?!?

Each 2x4 is ripped to create the perfect dimensional lumber needed to create a 'true' 2x6 thickness. Did you know a 2x6 is not really 2"x6", it's really 1 1/2" x 5 1/2"... a 2x4 is really 1 1/2" x 3 1/2"...
