The Glade (our house) originally had a round window in the bathroom.
With the renovation we added 2 more bathrooms and two additional round windows.
The original plan used 2 by 4 studs for the exterior walls. Due to building code and our choice of insulation, the walls were built with 2 by 6 studs.
The round windows would have fit perfectly in the original plan but now they’re about 2 inches too narrow.
I had to order jamb extenders for the 2-foot-diameter round windows so the interior trim can be applied after the tile is set. (Both windows are in a shower.)
I checked all possible vendors because a simple circle of wood varies greatly in price.
- Direct e-purchase sells a woodgrain polyurethane extension jamb for $66.
- Menards sells a molded polyurethane model for $93.
- B&B in Ohio sells wood models for $137.
- Nu-Englander, from whom I purchased the windows, charge $195.
I have ordered 2 round window extension jambs from Beacon Hill Supply in Ohio at $107 each (marked down from $136 each). Maybe a large embroidery hoop would have worked.
The lead time is 3 weeks. Let’s see if they get here at all.
Does price of things dismay you?
