    @boschmanbrian Thanks, working on a window like this was a learning experience, the things i learned working on that window have had a broad implication on my career.

    I think this took me 40 hours as the windows are not plumb, or square to each other.

    Who sets the windows?

    Who sets the windows?

    The framer builds the stick frame, installs the exterior trim, installs the exterior windows and doors, and the interior stairs.I wish my crew was large enough to take the windows, doors, and the stairs off their contract, as they create lots of problems for me.

    So you company you work for only does the trim and not the whole house?
    Did you have a meeting with the framers to let them know of the mistakes?

    That’s crap if the windows are out. That is basic framing. Level, plumb, square, and shimmed!! That is the product of sq ft pricing and using a cheap framer.

    Sounds like your crew may save money by doing the windows. Have you threw any numbers at them to get the windows

    i want to ask, if your window has house wrap,and a window pan be it copper or just a flex wrap. That material has a thickness. who in this community is countering that thickness and is shimming the tops of their windows and doors to account for the thickness of the pan? i say as a finish carpenter my windows are not plumb. who is at fault?

    I can’t say I have noticed any issues with trimming due to the window wrap/sill pan but I can see how it could cause grief in a bay or large multi unit window. Are you having issues with inconsistent jamb extension reveals or windows not being parallel to each other?

    I’d stick around here at BTP. I myself enjoyed seeing your thread and reading it.

    instead of getting the builder to not have the framers install the windows, have them simply set them in the holes but dont nail them off. let the siding installers actually set them as the windows not being level effects them as well.. as it can effect the trim on the outside just as much as the insdie if windows are close together

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    I wouldnt take my last comment serious. The one before when I said your crew may benifet by doing the windows was serious. This was a joke gone bad, I apologize that it came out like it did

    So yeah, I have been lurking the site. I don’t want this thread to be removed. I am probably going to take a lot of lip.

    This is a pantry I am building. The cleats are 1×6 popular ripped in half. The shelving is birch plywood. The plywood is scribed to the walls. But I also had to make sure the inside corner between the adjacent shelving was plumb and square, for the face frame. That forced me to pull the shelves away from the drywall. The gap between the plywood and the wall is calkable, like 1/8th of an inch, but i will hide the gap with a rip of popular. The seam of the plywood is biscuited. The top shelf was a pain to fit, as it sits right against a soffit, i was able to get it to work out.

    You ARE going to get some lip. Youre the new guy here and we will bust your balls for a while. Dont let that stop you coming back.

    Project looks good
