window jambs flush with framing

2190 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  firehawkmph
I am renovating a room in my house and have removed the old drywall and window trim
and have discovered that the window jambs are flush with the framing. Could I just
install new window trim and have the contractor drywall around the trim? Or do I need
to build up the jambs by adding 1 inch material? I am installing 3/4" tongue and groove
boards which will butt up against the window trim, the top portion is to be drywalled
in 1/2inch drywall.

go to the lumber yard and get some parting stop molding. It's 1/2" x 3/4", rectangular in shape. Inexpensive and easier than pulling out the table saw. Load up the brad tacker and go to town with it.
