I put "window" in a non-bearing wall between my kitchen and my dining room. To do so required cutting into plaster and lathe and some old beams (the house is over 100 years old). The opening exposes the entire backsplash of the kitchen counter-top. The ultimate goal of the project is to extend the kitchen counter-top with a new piece to create a serving area / breakfast bar.
I framed the opening with 2" x 6" studs and finished it with drywall. All that is left is the sill. Here is my problem: I'm still trying to figure out how I am going to mount the new piece of counter before I put on the sill and finish that part of the opening.
Any suggestions? Let me know if you need more information.
Thanks in advance for your help!
