Interior trim for outie windows in thick wall construction
I think I have made a mistake and need some strategies on how to fix it.
I have a new home construction with exterior rigid foam. I am planning “outie” windows. When I ordered the windows, I didn’t think about the interior trim strategy and the windows came with the standard interior trim pieces (not sure the terminology) attached. In other words, the window is set at the exterior, the window trim extends back into the house 3″ or so, and then I have another 3″ or so of no trim until I get to where the interior wall will be.
How do I make this look right? I guess I could just butt some trim boards against the edge of the window trim, but there would be a seam where the two materials meet, and there would be texture and possibly color differences. There isn’t enough space around the window to cover the window trim with a single piece of trim board. Can I remove the window trim in the field before they are set?
