But I digress .... back to your regular programming.
I ordered and installed some new windows this year. The interior stools were a separately order-able option. They are not factory installed on the prehung unit as they extend onto the interior wall surface on each side of the window. The bottom edge of the casing on the window sides then rests on top of the stool. The stool extends just past the outer edge of the casing. The factory needed to know the width of the casing so that the correct stool length was provided. The rear edge of the stool had a tongue that fit into a groove on the window unit making it self aligning. I just had the trim the tongue off a few inches on each end where the stool was against the wall. It literally took a few minutes to install the stools. It would have taken much longer If I had to mill them from scratch to fit the window units.

Very interesting discussion------------

I start my jobs with 'protecting the house'----if the house is lived in and has finished floor or carpeting--and furniture----you will be needing tarps and perhaps carpet ptotector--

Time depends on where the cutting station is----new construction--you can set up right in the house near the windows----saves lots of time--

These are all things Mako and other pros think of as we look over the job---and raise or lower the quote to cover them.

As a novice, you will want to analyze the job--time and expenses when you are finished--so the next one will reflect your experience.
