Quote from: countryborn on October 26, 2008, 12:47:47 PMWhen drawing the plans, I looked at Anderson windows & Jeld Wen windows instructions, they both said, 1/2" clearance. The manufacturer of the windows that we bought, International Window Corporation, calls for 5/8" clearance in the window rough opening.for the 2 windows we did yesterday, we used lathe to shrink the opening around the window opening before installing windows. (I now anticipate complications when we do the interior finish.)
