Awning Window/Mudroom

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, John only lost 4 inches of height above the awning window. There’s just enough space for corner bead around the top of the window.

The Andersen awning window is a 400-series custom size. When fully extended, it opens out at the bottom about 6 inches. It’s perfect for the mudroom. We also have the same window in the garage on the west side of the house.

John will build a bench underneath the window that will be about 8 feet long. It’s going to be fun designing the mudroom, I have lots of ideas. Thankfully, John is able to do all this work. Otherwise, it would be costly to hire a carpenter to build cubbies, bench seating with pullout drawers, shelves (new tiled floor), etc.

  1. Mud rooms were out of fashion for many years. Good to see them back, they make sense to me. A place to drop wet, snowy or dirty things. I think mudroom S are a spec where you can let your imagination take over.

    1. I wonder why they went out of fashion? A mudroom helps keep a house clean, tidy and free of muddy footprints. I can’t wait to be able to use it 🙂
