Ventilation slits – detail

Category: Vital Statistics February 21st, 2011 by mbc

On the forum, farmer lydia asked about ventilation / arrow slits:

From Barn Conversion 2011

My partner thought the windows would go on the inside, with a wooden frame to match the rest of the windows but I like the idea of glazing them on the outside and having a deep window ledge.

So I promised some more detail…

As you can see in the close up picture below, the glazed, thinly framed (you can see the narrow black metal framework), double-glazed window units have been ‘stuck’ in place with a mix of adhesives, fillers and wedges. Pretty crude, but effective. Internally, the stud frame and plaster board walling then fits up tight to the glazing. The photo is a little misleading, in that the angle it’s been taken at and the camera flash make the adhesive much more visible than it normally is. You can’t really see the join between the glazing unit and the wall unless you go looking – as you can see in the picture to the right.

Hope that helps farmer lydia?
