Well, I look at the calendar and it’s been over a month since I touched the keyboard for this next post. Things have been pretty busy here at Misadventures in Remodeling – as in lots more misadventures. Dang, I think I’ll have 5 years of posting to do by the time I get this thing finished.
But let’s continue with that Sun room addition.
Sill guard is used to waterproof the sills. Marvin windows made this, but I think it has been discontinued because it was hard to work with – now you tell me. House wrap in under the sill. The wrap will be pulled around to the inside on the sides once the sill guards are in place.
Now the larger windows are a little more difficult if you’re installing them solo. The instructions say install these windows as a single unit – with windows closed in frame. After putting in 20 or so of these guys – I found you can get a better result if you do this…
Proper installation with sill guards call for mounting straps on the bottom of the window. This way you can solidly attach the bottom of the window into the structure without putting holes in those fancy sill guards.
Things are starting to take shape. The octagonal window will have a stained glass insert. This wall will have the TV and fireplace below. With custom display cabinets – whenever I get around to designing them.
That’s it for now. It’s the time of the season that I sweep away the sawdust and spend some quality time with the loved ones.
I hope you have the opportunity to do the same.
Happy Holidays everyone.
May your renovations be merry and bright – and all your fixtures fit right.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
