Windows with no shims?
Amateur theoretical question here.
If I had windows on site while framing was being done, would it be good to frame the King and Jack studs right against the (vinyl, wood, aluminum, etc.) window frame in lieu of incorporating a 3/8ths inch gap for shim and spray foam? Assuming rough opening is square. Is the gap necessary or just easy to work with the get windows level?
