Step 1: Fur out the Window

Since the window's going in, you'll want to leave extra room. Fur out the existing window opening to 2 in. wider and 2-1/2 in. taller than the dimensions of the glass block panel.


<p>I have a vinyl window that I want to install, but I have no idea what I am doing. I am wondering if you follow the same steps for vinyl installation that you have listed here. If you could please let me know that would be great. Thank you for sharing. http://cornerstonewindowskc.com/kansas-city-vinyl-siding/</p>
<p>Do you have to use a rebuilt window frame or can you just use the original frame from the window? I would like to install a glass window like yours, but I don't think I can rebuild or reconfigure the frame on my own. That's a little bit out of my range of abilities. http://www.innovationssidingandwindows.com</p>
