Renovation Detail: The Casement Window

Every night as I wash dishes in my kitchen sink I stare from the window that is handiest, dreaming about the day I will throw it into a Dumpster and replace it with a French casement window. Attached for their framework by side hinges, casement windows have been installed singly or in pairs within a common framework (French). They are famous for their capacity to open wide, allowing for optimum ventilation and unobstructed views. What’s best is how readily they are opened. Hand cranks or cam handles are quite accessible and can easily be achieved even if a freezer , sink or tub is your manner.

Security note: Use caution if casements are set up on the top level of a home, keeping in mind the security of small children and pets.
