I'm planning a walkout bay window as an extension of an enclosed breezeway. To get the projection I need and fill the opening I needed to order three individual windows. The units will be about 36" wide and 80" tall. Actually the center unit is wider than that.
My question is whether it is practical to mull the units together on site or if the units need to be framed individually. One contractor indicated he could mull them, but I'm questioning whether this can be done so that the whole bay unit is stable and weather tight.
Thanks for your help!
I would think it could be done by a competent contractor. Will this window have any load above it? If so building the structure and adding the windows may be a better option that installing a single unit.
Hard to say sight unseen.
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
