I am planning on installing trim around some existing windows. This is in a new house and they trimmed the windows with drywall except a simple stool and apron. My plan was to remove the drywall to the studs and install wood jams and a header as well as a new stool, apron and of course casing. I just want to make sure this is the right way to go about this. I plan on using 3 1/2“ fluted casing with solid corner blocks (this matches my fireplace surround).

In my living room I have 3 windows together and was planning on making a continuous stool and apron but casing them separately. Do I sound like I am on the right path? Also when you use fluted casing what style trim would you use for the apron? Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi Steve,
It sounds like you are on the right track if I understand you. The apron is usually the same material that the casings are made of but cut to length, the length being from the outside of one casing to the other. I'll be here if you have more questions.....MJH

Yea I know you would usually use the same material but I plan on using fluted casing. I was not sure if fluted casing would look OK for the apron. What do you think? Thanks!
