RE: GSBN:Loadbearing sb with moisture damage



<x-charset windows-1250>We put in the windows in the usual way.  The idea is that the opening will
be cleaner, straighter and tighter, and this particular project was in a
location that gets brutal wind and rain, so we were doing everything
possible to make a tight shell. There was a lot of grumbling about it being
a lot of extra hard work (and straw on the floor), so we haven't done it
again.

Hmmm. Interesting.  So how do you attach the window?

Are you not doing this on a regular basis because it was harder in the long
run?
