We’ve started another project that was on my ‘ home improvement to do’ list . This time it is trimming out the windows in the back of our home.
I think some builders cut corners with less trim work as to save money and knowing the house will sell anyway just trim the windows in the front of the house and not the back. That was the case at our house.
Somehow to me it just looked unfinished. We didn’t want to start a huge project but wanted to add some detail to the back of our house we thought this would help. So the project began yesterday.
This is just the beginning as we have 2 stories and the windows on the deck area to be wrapped and trimmed.
Here is where I need your help :
We are not sure how to trim out this area. Sort of a bay window ( there’s a 3rd window you can’t see from this photo on the far right side) and the windows aren’t evenly spaced from the corners. I am thinking we take off the white trim and totally retrim it as one big window and then we add the trim on the corners as needed above and below the window trim. We would need wider boards to cover the spaces between the window and the corners and no siding would be shown in the window area. Does that make sense? I don’t exactly know how to describe it and really not sure that is the best approach. I could really use some advice, needed before Saturday as that is when our friend will be back to finish up. HELP!
A friend of mine has this around a group of windows at her house:
Her home is one where they didn’t cut corners and the details are amazing. I am hoping for neat and finished with improvement from the current appearance.
Please post your suggestions and if you can attach a photo. I have searched Houzz and Pinterest and still can’t find a photo of exactly what I should do.
Thanks for any suggestions you may have,
