Outie window detail with exterior foam?

airfix | Posted in Green Building Techniques on

I was looking through the detail library and could find no good details for outie windows installed with exterior EPS insulation.  Can anybody point me in the direction of a good window detail.

I’m planning window bucks with a masonary bracket install and the WRB outside of the foam.

    Here are links to two details for outie windows:

    Outie window sill detail

    Outie window head detail

    For a thorough discussion of issues surrounding these details, see this article: "Installing Windows In a Foam-Sheathed Wall."
