Yes we do have 2340mm doors. So if the window is the right height where is the rest of my render that is meant to be underneath? Something still not…

Here is another angle from December before the bottom window moulding was put on. The top of the window looks lower than the door frame.

Yes was trying to compare to plans. The top of the window looks like it should line up with the top of the front door frame on the drawings. And…
