Type of window on porch?
New here and would appreciate any opinions regarding our window decision.
We're in the process of designing a house that includes a wraparound porch. The architect and builder are suggesting that we consider something other than a double-hung window for increased energy efficiency.
Three of the possible alternatives are Loewen access windows, Loewen casements, and Marvin tilt-turns. I would prefer not to do the casements because I would not want someone on the porch to walk into an open casement. This might be a bit less of a concern with the access windows as we've been told we might be able to do something to restrict how wide the window will normally open (but also that could be removed to allow full access if necessary). The rooms with windows looking out on the porch are kitchen, utility room, office, and bedroom (the bedroom also has an exterior door for egress).
What would you do? Access, casement, tilt-turn or double-hung? Thanks in advance for any advice.
