BEFORE

Before The Architect sees this sort of pitiful and pitiable home plans Window Schedule more often than you'd think:

  BEFORE, HOME PLANS DETAIL - WINDOW SCHEDULE, in PDF 

What don't we know from this schedule?

How many are we installing?

Where do the windows go?

Which way are the casements opening?

How high on our wall will these windows be placed?

How much room will framers need for rough and masonry openings?

Are any of them to be mulled?

Who's making these windows?

What model are we to order within the manufacturer's line?

AFTER

Windows are a big deal in unique home design, owner investment, occupant safety and convenience.

Scheduling windows in unique home plans takes time and careful thought to address all the points that the other guys' might not be up to doing. 

Take a look-see for yourself at a recently completed unique home plans Detail- Window Schedule:

  AFTER, UNIQUE HOME PLANS DETAIL - WINDOW SCHEDULE, in PDF 

There are at least two notable aspects to this unique home plans window schedule beyond its generally complete format -

Window heights on walls are set at sill plate tops of face and not headers.  Before The Architect relies on the sill metric and not the header metric because a) it is more precise, in that when there'll be virtually no room to wiggle once the window's set on a sill; whereas, there's much more left to chance and chancy error by reckoning a header height, its downset to a window frame, the size of the frame, etc. and b) several popular home designing styles these days - e.g., the whole line of country looks, the Craftsman look - have windows large and small, high and low even on the same facade.  The days of a single header height for windows always all the same around the home faces are gone and good riddance to them, for almost any custom home these days, including more interesting stock home plans.

    In the Notes section, Before The Architect takes special interest on conveying life-saving basics about securing windows.

Finally, it's worth pointing out that the home plans Window Schedule is the fundamental source for populating both the home plans Emergency Egress Schedule and Illumination Schedule, not counting the key code inclusion in home Floor Plans and Elevations.
