Quote from: John Raabe on February 05, 2011, 01:09:00 PMNice job! I too like the bottom band. You could also work the window trim so it comes right down to the water table over the metal. Then there is another opportunity on the trim out to run a band around the house over the window tops. This could break the siding pattern, provide for color contrast and allow something else on the gable ends. Perhaps horizontal bevel siding on the mid section and sidewall shingles on the gables.
Quote from: Redoverfarm on March 16, 2011, 07:41:39 PMastidham I built 8 windows from replacment windows for an addition on my house. I used 3/4 stock and wrapped the exterior with metal and trimmed the inside of the exterior with vinyle quarter round. The interior was finished wood which was part of the 3/4 framingYou might consider breaking a piece of metal for a drip edge on the top of the windows to prevent water from entering and laying between the vinyle window and wood frame. If you have any "grace" or ice guard left I woud be tempted to seal the top, sides and bottom (same as originally in proper order) where the wood meets the vinyle window.

Quote from: duncanshannon on April 04, 2011, 05:26:45 PMwhats your cost going to be for the electricity? In NW WI, its $4-6 depending on the state of your lot. I'm about 1/4 mile from the nearest power source. Thinking solar might be really cool.ooh, i want to learn more about cistern systems... what are your plans for that? I like the idea of that too!
