new construction windows in an old house


I am a little confused when you say there is no sheathing. In the next to last picture it looks like horizontal boards on the outside of the studs but in your first two pictures the siding looks vertical. Some looks like T1-11 and some looks like tongue and groove pine. Two layers or one would be treated differently. If there are two layers it would be easier to cut the trim into the first layer to cover the flange, and drip cap at the top is easier.

The first two pics are mine: website rotated pics, siding is horizontal. Last two pics are not my post. I have no sheathing, only solid redwood siding.

OK, Now I understand. My first post about T1-11 would still be the proper procedure, as the siding was applied in the same way. It isn't according to Hoyle but it works. It also leaves you with the option of siding over the existing siding, up to the new window casing, and using drip edge at the top.

Thanks Duckweather. I put one window in over the weekend. Looks great and easy enough to seal it up.

FYI. To remove old aluminum window I removed the glass then used a crowbar to remove the frame. Took some brute force but managed to remove without and damage to RO or siding. A sawzall helped too.
