Feelin' Sill-y

The first steel sills installed
Remember those steel sills and copings here that I was painting?

Today the weather broke long enough for me to install the first run of them along the master bedroom window 'slot'.

Brian at Flux did a excellent job fabricating these!  They fit perfectly, and practically self-aligned.
Shims, prior to install.  At the corner you can see the treated wood piece providing support to the sills.
The sills overhang quite a bit at this point, but will eventually project just a little bit once the exterior insulation, furring, and siding is installed.
At the corner.  A seam is visible to the left.  Sealant at the inside edge helps divert water back to the outside of the (future) siding.
