Casement Window Trim

I've become pretty adept at rehabbing my own double-hung windows over the years, but now a friend needs help with casement windows. Any tips on similarities/differences?

Many thanks!

Chris, Did you ever get any advice? I'm working on my windows, and need some need hinges to go with my antique hinges. Any idea where I can find them?

double hung windows operate completley different than a casement. double hungs have sashes that slide up or down in the frame to open them where as the sash in a casement operates like a door it swings open at the side via a crank on the inside

Most all casement window require an extension jamb to get it flush with the wall before you can trim it.
