Sunroom Windows

We did the first wall of windows awhile back but followed the same steps for the second wall. The sunroom has been my favorite room in this house and while I wish we had gotten it done sooner I’m still grateful I got to enjoy for awhile!

Getting the Space Ready for Windows

On each wall we removed the yucky existing windows. Then we built up the ledge that the windows would be sitting on to the correct height making sure everything was level. After the opening was ready we starting installing the windows one at a time.

DIY Installing the Windows

We got both the outer windows secured and then placed the middle window in. Ed spaced and secured them using PVC trim/molding.

Finishing the Outside Trim

He finished the outside molding first in case of rain and then the next weekend did the inside. Also note this was before we painting the house white! You can find that link HERE!

Inside Trim

When the outside molding was done Ed finished the drywall below the windows and then the inside trim. The second wall of windows went much smoother and faster after we’d had a bit of experience under our belts!
