Greetings, my first post here!
My home is new construction (2002) in Southern California and has drywall around the inside of the window frame. I believe there is metal edging around the inside edges of the frame.
I would like to add casing with a stool and apron. However, I have to remove the drywall at the bottom of the window in order to install the stool properly. The pros that have been installing trim around here simply put the stool on top of the drywall. The problem with that is then you can’t remove the window!
My question is: What is the best way to remove the drywall at the bottom of the window. And what will be exposed; a 2x4 to attach the new stool to?
I would greatly appreciate your help, thanks!
