The sills of these windows are white oak and run flush into the flooring.
My company Risinger Homes recently completed a 1940’s remodel on a house in Central Austin with several large site built wood windows. The architect on the project Nick Deaver detailed these with Oak sills that flush up with the Oak hardwood floors, then the jambs are made from African Mahogany, and finally the heads are painted Poplar. It’s a stunning end product and it could only be accomplished by a crew of fine carpenters. I’m incredibly blessed to have four of the finest finish carpenters in Texas on my staff, but I also have a tremendously talented framing sub-contractor crew. These windows were a collaboration between my rough carpentry crew and my finish carpenters to execute these details. If you want to fast forward to the end product you can see the finished windows starting at 8:17 on the video. Matt Risinger, Risinger Homes, Austin, TX
Here’s the finished outside.
The jambs are made from African Mahogany, and the heads are Poplar. It’s striking! Great ideas/details from Nick Deaver, amazing execution from my carpentry team, and a beautiful house. I love my job.
