How Do You Frame A Bullnose Window?

Bullnose windows give a modern edge to any room, without being too flashy. Plus, they come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you can find the perfect one for your home.

Here are the steps for framing a bullnose window:

  1. Use a tape measure to measure the length, width, and height of the window opening. These three numbers are essential when you are framing a bullnose window because they will show exactly how big of a piece of wood you need and what shape that piece of wood needs to be.
  2. Mark your measurements on the wood using a pencil or pen so that it is visible when you are working with your saw later on.
  3. Cut out a piece of wood to fit against the outer edge of your window opening so that it frames out most, but not all, of the window opening due to the angle at which your bullnose windows slope outward.
  4. Saw or miter cut the wood at the angle you selected in step 2.
  5. Cut a section of ½-inch plywood or MDF to fit between the top edge of your bullnose window and the plywood which you have just cut to fit against the outer edge of your window opening. This will be the frame for your bullnose window.
  6. Attach this piece of wood to the frame with screws, nails, or brackets so that it holds your bullnose window firmly in place once you are done mounting it on your wall.
  7. Fill in the gaps between your bullnose window and the edges of your window opening with a spackle and then let it dry.
  8. Prime and paint the whole frame of your bullnose window with a deck brush so that you can easily access all hard-to-reach areas, including those near the edges.


How Do You Frame A Log Cabin Window?

Framing a log cabin window requires the following processes:

  1. Measure the width, length, and height of your log cabin window.
  2. Make a list of cut materials based on your measurements. This step involves measuring each type of material you will be using and multiplying that length by the number of pieces needed to cover the whole window opening.
  3. Cut all pieces with a handsaw and sand them down by hand using a sander or sandpaper to remove any splinters and make them smooth to the touch. Mark rounded corners with a pencil so that you can carve out these rounded corners later on with a chisel or handsaw for that extra decorative touch.
  4. Install the side pieces of your log cabin window frame on the inside of the window opening. The thicker piece of wood will be located closest to the bottom, followed by a thinner piece of wood on top.
  5. Measure and cut the other pieces of your log cabin window frame based on measurements you took in step 1 and then install them as described in step 4 so that they fit snugly next to each other.
  6. Carve out the rounded corners in the same way you cut rounded corners for your other pieces of wood so that your log cabin window frame has a decorative touch.
  7. Mount your log cabin window frame onto a section of drywall to hide the rough edges and also keep it firmly in place.
  8. Find the space between the two outermost pieces of wood in your log cabin window frame and remove any thin pieces of wood which may be blocking the path between them so that there is ample room for mounting purposes later on.
