Extended Window Jambs & Sills
Hello. We’re building a modern farmhouse with Scandinavian features and I really would like to not have any window trim (casings) on the exterior. I’ve read a couple of articles here about just building extension jambs and sills, which I think would achieve the look I’m going for. My question is if we just build extension jambs/sills and the windows need to be replaced in the future will we have to cut away at some of the siding to get the window out? Is there another way to achieve this look without potentially compromising siding in the future? I’ve attached photos of the look I’m going for.
