Our dealer in Southold, NY at Wallace Home Design recently sent us these photos of a Kirtz Shutter project he did that had some unique challenges to it.
The customer wanted the openness of a 3 1/2″ louver, but also loved the clean lines of her casing. The window had limited depth, and operable window cranks created obstructions. This made it impossible to mount the shutter flush within her existing window jamb as was her preference.
She was adamant she did not want any projection past her window casing so we devised a unique solution for her windows.
The shutter was built into its own frame (or jamb), then mounted inside the window jamb. This frame allowed us to create the extra projection that was needed for the louvers to operate and the unit to clear all obstructions.
To eliminate the look of any shutter projection beyond the casing, Kirtz Shutters made custom sized casing pieces, that matched the layout of her window casing. These loose casing pieces were then applied onsite by Mike and his crew over the existing casing. The finished result? A look that allows the customer to have the larger louver, hidden tilt rod and simple clean lines she desired.
