Building Wood Windows On The Job Site

Video Length: 9:44
Produced by: Matt Risinger

My company Risinger Homes recently completed a 1940's remodel on a house in Central Austin with several large site built wood windows.  The architect on the project Nick Deaver detailed these with Oak sills that flush up with the Oak hardwood floors, then the jambs are made from African Mahogany, and finally the heads are painted Poplar.  It's a stunning end product and it could only be accomplished by a crew of fine carpenters.  This was a collaboration between my rough carpentry crew and my finish carpenters to execute these details.  If you want to fast forward to the end product you can see the finished windows starting at 8:17 on the video.  Matt Risinger, Risinger Homes, Austin, TX
