Forum Title: Wood barn sash windows, how to rough
Hello all. I am building a shed and have 4 22Wx29H cheap wooden barn sash windows. They are trimmable to a 1/2 inch from each side. I have never made a rough opening for these, and am not sure how to go about it. I've seen some barn sash windows that come out completely when you want some air, some that swing in and up to an eye-bolt, and some that open out like casements. I would prefer to make these windows open out with hinges, but I may be out of luck, not sure. I am concerned about the 4 seasons I live in, so a good water-tight fit is important, as I will have many tools in this shed. I am in an extremely flexible stage right now, so any suggestions are good ones. Thanks.

Things to look at...where does the pipe come from and where does it go. Ditto with the cable. If that is a water heater I see in the right margin, you can elbow the copper up and over the door header and eliminate the drop back down by just re-running it to the water heater. The cable must either be re run completely or two junction boxes must be installed on either side of the door with the cable going up and over like the pipe, just not in the same holes. Again, where does it go and what does it service. If it is a home run of 12-2 on a 20 amp receptacle service, you could install two receptacles on either side of the new door eliminating the need for the junction boxes as the j-boxes must remain on the surface and accessible.

Below is a link to a picture of a barn sash window being inserted. The technique used in this installation only allows the window to be tilted inward a little bit, or removed entirely. I am trying to figure out how to frame and trim the same window, only half the size, so it will swing outward, either on two upper hinges or on two side hinges. The window is 1 inch thick, white pine. Thanks for the response.http://www.barnsbuilt.com/images/sash-window-200.jpg
