The 14’ window wall was delivered earlier this month, and with some Yankee ingenuity I got the four panels up to the second floor by myself.  They average about 100 pounds each, but are large, almost 4x8, so bulky.


The two fixed panels sit inside the opening near the center, widthwise.  The sliders fit outside. Since the lintel is ICF, with 2 1/2” of foam on the face, I took a 1x6 about the same length as the two fixed panels and placed it flat against the top surface and set it with concrete anchors.  That way I had something to attached the aluminum top track to. Got the fixed panels set and trimmed and proceed to do the sliders.  When setting their 14’  track on the outside face of the opening, I quickly noticed that the opening and a 3/4’  bow in it, concave to the face, but I didn’t think much of it other than the contractor hadn’t been as precise as he should have been. So I set the sliders and notice now that there is a gap between the slider and fixed panel frames when closed, when they should have been quite close.  The culprit? The bow.  So now its either create a piece of trim attached to one side of the slider the hangs over and effectively closes the gap, or see if ther is enough room vertically on the fixed panel section to add another 1x to extend out further and allow the fixed panels to meet up.  I can’t simply replace the old 1x6 as I also used construction adhesive in a “belt and suspenders” approach.

Oh well, we’ll figure it out.  It does look good though!
