Re: 2-Story Addition...Trials and Tribulations


And yesterday I finished getting the existing bay windows reset. When I installed them 10 years ago, because they were replacements, no nail fin. Lucky for me, the windows have the channel for the nail fin to slide into. So I was able to buy the nail fin and put it in.

This is my jig for cutting it.



The side windows were pretty easy to test fit....but the main window? That beast was heavy. And the existing window frame was NOT square. So I made a light template the same size for testing the square, size and fit.







And it's flashed....calked.....and installed....

Re: 2-Story Addition...Trials and Tribulations


I didn't see it until now; your Romex should have been fastened within 8" of the boxes... so it doesn't pull out of the receptacle outlet and start a fire when "the big one" hits here (seismic). Does your Energy Code require plastic vapor barrier- wrapped FG? You can still saw between the vertical plywood panels to get required gap before the WRB... may need to un-stick the sticky wrap under the windows to lap over on to the WRB-- that little bit of lap is better than a reverse lap. Is that a golf course across the road? Looks like you are moving right along!

If you are talking about the second pic, all of that wiring has been redone. That box was changed from a double to a single and moved about a foot closer to the window. Remember, all that wiring was done 16 years ago when I first remodeled the kitchen.

No on the plastic wrap....it's California....the walls originally didn't even have insulation.

I'm doing LP Smartside.....if I wanted, I could have attached directly to the studs. I didn't 'have to' install the 1/2" CDX...but I wanted shear wall as insurance for the next 'big one'.

So, I'll have studs....1/2" CDX....WPB (Water Proof Barrier...AKA, tar paper) and then ledger stone and LP

On the windows....I double it up. When I do the wrap, I'll use the bulitine again on top of the wrap. As those windows are now, there is no path for water to get in. They are completely sealed on the outside. The nail fin has silicone on both sides. There is a 'generous' bead of caulk behind the nail fin. When I do the wrap, it will be stair stepped up and sealed around the window. I will also install a cap flashing on top of the trim at the top of the window.

I'm even going to paint the bottom of my plywood and caulk before I install the weep screen.

Re: 2-Story Addition...Trials and Tribulations


Sounds good, be sure to leave drainage behind the window bottom flange (no caulk there) to your sill drainage membrane. Yes, having the plastic wrapper would worry me in your climate zone and warm outside air would easily get around it to condense on the colder drywall. Plywood also helps stop the warm air infiltration- as does foaming the outlet boxes- not just interior foam covers as they don't stop air in the plug where RH condenses on cold contacts with AC on.
Stagger joints on the LP from the ply joints, you knew that, lol.

Re: 2-Story Addition...Trials and Tribulations


AC? What is AC? (I'm 4 miles from the ocean....we don't need no stinking AC)

As for LP....I'm using lap siding....and with the boards being 16' long, I won't have to worry about butt joints.

But....speaking of the bottom flange of the window.....

My 'plan' is to take the ledger stone all the way up to the bottom of the windows....or rather the bottom of the window trim. I'll have LP trim around the windows. Then below bottom trim will be kick out flashing and the ledger stone will tuck under that.

Before the ledger stone is put on, I'll have a contractor come out and do the equivalent of a scratch coat on the bottom section of wall....it will be 2 layers of builders paper....wire mesh....kick out flashing at the top edge and weep screen at the bottom.
