The basement windows now have jambs!  I made them out of pine nailers salvaged from the roof of an old house which was being remodeled; they closely match the color and nail-riddled texture of the ceiling.  The best part is that they cover up much of the hideous white vinyl surround of the new windows.  I still have a little insulating and caulking to do, but not much.  They will remain just like this – they project roughly 3/8″ from the face of the wall.  I thought a frame would look too finished and come too close to the ceiling joists for visual comfort. I’m happy with the clean simplicity of the jambs by themselves.

 

Jambs!
