As we mentioned in our previous post about our master bedroom/bathroom remodel, we are having two new windows installed.
One is for the new master bath and will go where there has never been a window. The other will replace the vinyl window in the original bathroom. Both windows face west and are adjacent to each other in the back of our house.
Since the original bathroom has a vinyl replacement window, we have no idea what the original bathroom window was like. This left us with no template for our new windows.
We had to get creative and design new windows based on the appearance of the original windows we still have.
The top picture on the left is of our original kitchen window. One of the things we love about our house is the rather unusual windows which combine a casement window with a fixed sash. We wanted to replicate that look throughout the house.
After a lot of thought, we decided to design our own windows based upon the style of the original windows.
We did a rough drawing of a casement window with a small fixed pane designed to fit in the rough opening of the original bathroom.
We then worked with Versatile Sash to turn our drawing into finished windows, one of which you see at the bottom left.
Though there are some minor differences due to changing technologies, the windows are remarkably similar. We are quite pleased.
As you can see, Gary has already primed the windows and they are ready to be installed.
Once the ice melts that is making it nearly impossible to do anything, we are going to have both of the windows installed.
