- It's now time to add the timber sill and the timber jam.…Now these things line up together…if you just look down here we've got these…so that these flush at the front.…And they're set back from the edge of the brick 15mil.…Now we haven't put in our sill brick yet.…We'll put that in a bit later.…But we'll bring these profiles in.…And if you haven't got access to the premium content…then you can either draw something…that looks a bit similar to that.…
The overall size of this is approximately…we're looking at 126 there, we've got 44mil there.…And then this thing comes in approximately 70mil.…So you could sort of work out a shape based on that.…And similarly the jam would be the same depth as the sill.…And you would then have something…that would be about 44mil thick.…
And this offset here is about 72mil OK.…So this bit is going to correspond with this bit here.…So went it wraps around there is…a little bit of a difference in the frame…because what we would have on the jam side…a load of extra sills that we're not going to put in.…
