Knock, knock

A short while back we designed and cut the mock window shapes. Today we assembled the fist window buck thick combined four windows and one door into one large piece. We first welded up a heavy duty steel frame. We lined the steel with plywood and then fastened in the plywood window shapes. The plywood buck was built around this combined shape. This large buck will be placed in the wall. The ICF forma will be built around it. Once the concrete is poured the plywood window shapes will be removed, making room for the actual windows. The bucks will remain permanently fastened in the walls.
Soon I’ll be designing and routing the trim and panels for the door and window trim. Stay tuned as more of this project comes together…
