Kitchen Window Bucks

Today I built and installed the two window bucks in the kitchen area.

Any time that you break up the continuity of a wall by adding a window or door opening, you need to add extra reinforcing steel underneath, beside, and above the opening. This ensures that the wall remains strong enough to support the weight of the everything above the opening. The photo below was taken looking down through the bottom of one of the window bucks.
