Can I use replacement windows when all I have is the rough opening? Isn't the wooden "sash" or "casing" the only difference between the two?!? If so, can I just make the sashes, and attach them to the replacement windows? Would it be better just to bite the bullet and buy the windows with the sash(s) already attached? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

two cents

The sash is considered the part that slides up and down which is removed for a replacement installation. With replacements the sill and trim remain intact and their is no work on the exterior of the house. With all things considered .....I would bite the bullet for new. Cut back the siding or rip some boards to trim out the exterior or purchase the windows with trim attached. The interior is going to need to be finished regardless..............
