Is that poured right up against the building siding or is there foam or some kind of expansion material between the building siding and concrete? Just curious.
It’s the remnants of an old wall of a building that is now inside a larger building. I just put the concrete up against the steel of the old wall, no expansion foam. It was a quick and dirty job that I formed and placed in the span of an hour, the driver was heading back with a yard or so from the job he was as at, and it was pure get er done.

Changing out a bedroom window from a 4'x2' to a 6'x5'.
That sounds like a lot more work than I would want to do.

Dealing with whatever siding is on the outside, sheetrock inside. Install a new header. Nah. :)

I'm doing generous-sized window trim, so the outside part is relatively easy. The existing header was wide enough, so i recycled it.

Can't afford to hire people for this stuff so this week i'm a hacky carpenter. :p
