Yesterday, John and Joe installed 5/4 x 6 Hardie trim around the Kitchen French doors.
The outdoor light will be to the left of the French doors (the wire is visible in the photo).
John has a 6′ Empire level shown leaning up against the house. He also has a 4′ Empire level. True Blue vials are accurate to within 0.0005 in.–the most accurate in the world. Here’s a link to purchase one on Amazon, if you’re interested. (This is an affiliate link. If a purchase is made I make a 4% commission on the sale.)
For the trim on the kitchen window, they ripped a 5/4 x 6 board down the center to 2 5/8. By ripping it down the center, there wasn’t any waste.
Joe installed a drip cap over the kitchen window too.
