How to build a corner window in wood frame construction
3608 Quesnel Dr
Corner windows look more complicated than they are. You can see the beams cantilevering out to pick up the load that the roof will be exerting. The plywood joints are blocked as all exterior walls in this house are to be built as sheer walls. We have also doubled the sill of the window so that the corner is lapped and stiff.
Oh and the view from the bathtub, as seen here, isn't too shabby either.
