Drywall Edges - bead or no?
 
Drywall hanging question regarding the finish out around a window opening.

I have 2x6 walls with the windows inset such that I have about 3 1/2 to 4 inches of "sill" space around the inside of each window. I plan to trim out the windows with 1x maple stock and some molding.

Question is the drywall - we have hung the walls with flush cutouts at each window opening. Do we have to install "J-bead" where the drywall edge meets the window well opening?...or since this cut edge will be covered with trim wood - do we not use edging bead?

Thanks.

Rick

general practice is to leave alone when covered by molding. In fact anything more and you would probably be considered "OC" by sheetrockers. :wink:

You must mean "jamb" space (for the window's side jambs, header stock and bottom sill stock.

As stated already: That's good enough right there...for your finish trim work...
