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.
