Due to a fire we are having to rebuild the inside of our house. It is a 1930's bungalow and we are putting in new windows. I want the old style sills inside and out and am trying to find how to. Do I install windows first and then the 1x4 inside or put the 1x4 and the window on top. The 2x4 sloping on the outside is done after the windows are installed

Any help or pictures would be appreciated.

Hey ducky,

Windows go in from the outside and are nailed in place through the exterior trim. This is what holds the window in place. Then the interior trim is installed in this order. Stool caps (what most people call sills), left and right stops, header stop, and then casing or what I think you meant when you mentioned a 1x4, sides first and then the top and finally the apron, the piece on the very bottom of the window below the stool cap. The length of the apron should be the distance from the outside edge of the left casing to the outside edge of the right casing. Best of luck....MJH
