Hmmmm.......this may complicate things.
Handyguys method sounds good,....but it seems I may need a little more work in the framing to achieve this?
- Remove drywall from interior
- Determine window opening, frame kingstuds, header...etc..etc...to create rough opening.
- Cut exterior T1-11 to exact size of rough opening ??
- Lay special flashing tape around perimeter of exterior T1-11, top-down fashion, bending it to fit the inside of the rough opening as well.
- Insert window from exterior, laying nail flange directly onto tape (over T1-11).
Ofcourse use caulk under flange,...and nail through T1-11 into opening framing studs ??
- Another layer of flashing tape over nail flange around perimeter.
- Cover nail flange/tape with trim boards,..
- Caulk the hell out of it all.
- Finish up interior.
Sound about right??
ANY problems using a normal non replacement window?
also, on the bottom sill of the framing, would it help to use a beveled sill plate to make sure any water that comes in goes back out?
Any other thoughts?
