Hopefully everyone visiting Lumber Jocks has ready my blog on my new shop build – SHAMELESS BLOG PLUG . If you have read it you know that I am framing walls. Im framing everything but the rough opening for doors and windows with the intention of coming back after the walls are erected and framing the openings.
Im having some trouble determining at what elevation above finished floor to place the windows. My windows are 20” high by 24” wide and I am placing them in groups of 2 and 3 on 8’ tall walls. My thoughts are to come up slightly more than 4 feet from the finish floor place a 20” high wind and then have 2 feet above the window.
With a window at 4’ AFF I have room to slide a piece of plywood under the window as well as place a 30” to 36” high bench or cabinet under it. having 2’ above the window leaves enough room to place a sturdy header above it.
Im 6’5” so I don’t have any concerns with reaching the window to operate it and at that height it will give me a clear line of sight to look out of it.
Does anyone have any thoughts for or against?
