Quote from: NathanS on November 11, 2018, 07:38:13 PMThis was a pretty terrible year weather-wise. We were getting snow on April 30th.. I was hoping it would balance out with a decent fall, but as soon as Oct 1 came we went straight from the 60s to the 40s.And it has been unbelievably wet over here too. Our fields are like a swamp, but as of today it's been so cold I think it's starting to freeze up..
Quote from: NathanS on November 11, 2018, 09:18:37 PMIf you did extend the jambs 3/4", you should have king studs next to the window that you can use structural screws to attach the furring strips.

Quote from: SouthernTier on February 28, 2019, 02:36:34 PMI ordered two sets of the 3-5/8" Jamsills direct. They were very helpful.The Andersen instructions say to install a drip cap, but I can't seem to find them. I think they put that in their instructions so they have an excuse to void the warranty if they leak. I figure the first row of tape along the top of brickmould serves that purpose. No one will ever be looking down onto the brickmould.
