[Bldg-sim] eQUEST Window Frame modelling

I am currently using eQUEST to carry out an ASHRAE 90.1 study on an art
museum. I am new to the software and am in the process of modelling the
skylights positioned in the gallery roof. I was wondering if anyone knew
how I would go about modelling the 1.25" frames that surround these
skylights? The frames obviously have a different U-values to the roof
construction and the glazing. Do I have to manually draw the frames
surrounding the skylights or is there a way of generating the frames
when I create the glazing construction profile?

Many thanks
