Picture Window
Patrick6584

Hi - I have a picture window that I am trying to restore. I want to take the five ornate sections of molding under the window and strip, sand and repaint. I'm wondering if this is load bearing/supporting the window and if its OK to remove? Any advice?

 

Thanks,

Patrick

Patrick, Trim and moulding is never load bearing. That would be just silly. Only structure is load bearing when something is above it.

I just looked at the pictures. Looks like this window is supported on the bottom. I see one 2x that is holding all the weight. I would take this one apart and rebuild it.
