Topic tags/keywords: window trim sill stool

Hi all. I’ve cut stools and case for windows before, but have just had 2 windows installed in our 3rd floor renovation that are a bit different than any I’ve worked on. Can anyone advise on where the stool sits and how it fastens to the frame? Thanks in advance.

Id attach a block to the existing lower framing and run the stool off of that.

@ chrisstef: thanks for the reply, so the top of the stool is flush with the 1.5” strip like this?

Not sure how a block underneath would work, there’s only a 1/2 inch depth there if I want to run an apron.

im fairly certain it sits flush like you have drawn. i do see your problem with the apron or trim though. Maybe you could attach it directly to the apron and then put them in together nailing on through the apron? Might leave it awfully weak though if someone was to lean on it.

maybe I do a 1/2 block up to the sheetrock and then a 5/4” apron, would look a bit bulky but probably make it solid if the stool is sitting on 1 and 3/4 inches?

Have your say...
