The marking of the upper and lower borders of the window opening is performed using a professional tool – water level. Its height should exceed by 13 cm a similar parameter of the inserted plastic window, and width – by 12-14 cm. Plus, 1.5 cm is left on each side for sealing with mounting foam.

The floor must be cleared of debris and metal particles that can break the delicate cloth.

First, using a level, you need to measure all the angles in the room, as this will affect the profile docking.

The gate with which the bucket of water can be lifted can be made of a log with a diameter of 0.2 cm. A hole is made in the central part of each end of the gate, into which an axis and a handle of the gate are then inserted.

Metal components of the gate are usually made separately on order or from improvised means. On the side of the handle of the gate you need to put on 2 washers, and one – on the other side.

Pucks serve to prevent the gate from moving and contribute to its durability. For a more visual idea of ​​what design options for the upper part of the well can be, you can watch the video below.
