As is the case with many of the openings in my house, this window is too close to a wall and I cannot have a full trim on one side. I made an attempt to trim it out as shown in the pictures but I’m not sure if this was the best way to do it.
Trim is 3″ wide but on the left hand side, I only have 2″ before I hit the wall. Instead of just cutting the casement to fit, I extended the flat part to the wall. I then continued the 1/4″ bead around the entire window.
How would one trim this out ?
I’m addressing this to basswood because he’s the only trim carpenter i know of here. But please, if someone else has a better solution, do tell.
(by the way, to the left of the window, there is a chase with a 4″ heating duct going up to the 2nd floor. The 8″x8″ chase is framed with a 2×6 and a 2×8 butted together and covered with 1/2″ drywall. I could remove the drywall and 2×8 and replace the whole thing with 1/2 G1S plywood. That would give me an extra 1.5″ and be enough for a whole trim piece. For symmetry, I would need to do the same on a chase on the other side. Visually, this would be the best option but since I would make the chase smaller, I have to refinish the crown moulding and ceiling at the top)
