creating a bay or bow window unit without bumping out the exterior wall

Recommended Posts

I'm using Home Designer Architecture and need to create a bow or bay window without bumping out the exterior wall.  Does anyone know how to create one or alter the one in the library?

Could you elaborate on "without bumping out the exterior wall". 


 


These types of windows have been discussed here in the forum. Have you done a search?

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

I'm using HD architect 2016. When you select a bow, bay or box bay window from the library, upon inserting into the exterior wall, the program automatically alters the framing and foundation wall to follow the window. I was asking about taking a pre-assembled window such as Andersen Window units. I have done more research on the internet and found 3D items and imported them to the software library. Found them in Sketch Up's 3D warehouse. I may import from my old AutoSketch program as well

 

Thank you.

When I started planning the interiors of my house one of the things I really wanted was to make the music area as special as possible but the problem was we didn't have an extra space in the room so I decided to place a new bay window. it actually gives us more interior space and provides a view of the landscape outside .Two or more people will be required for the process of installing a bay window .Its is better to consult an experienced agency to construct and install the windows .I consulted Northech Windows and Doors for my home.They provides us with world class products with affordable rates and also provides the best services
