    I have my replacement window here now and am getting ready to put it in. It does fit nicely.The
    window case sticks out further past the nail fin than I was expecting, I expect this is to
    allow for the...

    Thanks for the video link. I am actually getting close to replacing the window, meaning I have
    all of the foundation repaired up the that level and I have the window frame built. Tomorrow I
    will order...

    I would also ask why the original shims have shifted.Is the stack of blocks plumb? If the stack
    is leaning at all, then you need to address that. As as stated above, the blocks should be
    mortared toge...

    Since you are trying to fill the voids and hopefully do some sealing foam is a wast of time.Use
    mortar or masonry grout to fill the voids. Obviously concrete will not work. A wet, soupy grout
    (Portlan...

    I found a Pella dealer around here who will sell me a custom built window. I have used Pella
    windows and some door before and they seem to be a good manufacturer. The cost of the window
    will range fro...

    Well I guess I am going to be using type S mortar, since there have been no other suggestions.
    What is a good ratio to use? I would guess 1 part type S to 2-2.5 parts mason sand, but I could
    also see ...

    I wouldn't use any type of spray foam to fill those gaps. Won't properly seal when the time
    comes, and certainly provides no structural strength. Stick with mortar, and maybe consider
    Type S if you wa...

    I wouldn't dig into the foundation. I would just build the frame and set it in there and fill
    the gaps with morter. Leave the 2x8 far enough out so the rock won't intefer with trim and fill
    behind tha...

    Yup, that,s ugle enough. I have no experience with that foundation, but I would guess that they
    set the window in place and put rock around it. I think you will want new rough in with treated
    lumber a...
