Cut and Install Around Windows

Here's a handy trick for easily cutting holes in beadboard sheets for windows. With the help of a friend, hold the beadboard sheet in place, covering the window completely. Step outside of the window, then trace its opening along the back of the beadboard with pencil (Image 1). Next, use circular saw to cut hole for window out of beadboard. Once cut, add liquid bonding adhesive to studs around window (Image 2), position beadboard (Image 3), then secure with nail gun.

Cut Holes for Outlets and Switches

Use measuring tape to determine exact position of outlets and switches (Image 1). Mark measurements on beadboard using pencil and speed square (Image 2). Next, use drill and 1-inch drill bit to create a pilot hole along marked line (Image 3). Cut hole completely from beadboard with jigsaw, starting jigsaw inside pilot hole (Image 4).

Frame Windows

Use measuring tape to determine the window's dimensions (Image 1). Referring to these measurements, mark 8-foot long planks of 1x3 pine to size, then cut with circular saw. Once cut, install all four sides of the frame using a nail gun (Images 2 and 3).
