New Rough Window Opening in Existing Brick
I am framing a new 41WX57H Pella casement window into a brick house where a 60WX29H side sliding window was removed. Even though I have to remove brick to elongate the hole, I still would like to make the brick mason's job as easy as possible. Should I keep the new rough opening along one edge of the current brick opening, or should I center the new window in the old opening and allow the mason to brick up to each side of the new window.
Depends upon how the new window will look from the outside of your home. Will moving it to one side maintain any balance that might exist with other windows & doors. You might want to talk with your mason. It might not make a difference to him or he may prefer to brick both sides of the window.
