Re: Skinning over windows
And then there's the places like what we went to... $260 shop labour plus another $200 for 17 pieces of 20 ga with one edge bent up at a 90* angle. We won't be doing that! Instead I have located a big roll of 24" X 50' heavy flashing for $66 at Ace Hardware here in town. David can cut it with his aviation shears and we won't need it bent anymore. We are keeping all the window frames and gluing the cut & painted flashing into the outer tracks of the window frames. Foamboard insulation and can foam for the "gaps" will be placed in the frames until level with the outer flange, then the whole wall will have a layer of foam insulation over all. My operating windows will be trimmed out with a trim not yet decided on... probably 1X3 PVC molding (PVC won't rot if the metal from the window trim condenses moisture).
