putting in a new window
I'm just thinking ahead here. We're about to start a bit of a kitchen remodel, but there isn't anything for me to think/plan about there right now, so I'm thinking about next year ;)
The room that will be our bedroom in the upstairs back of the house has 1 door and 1 double hung window that open to the back porch addition. To put a "real" window into the room we'll be putting it into the roof, because of the way our roof slopes down. We have knee walls on one side of the room - the other side was 'finished' out to the roof wall. The other 'finished' side is where we're contemplating a window.
What kind of work is involved in something like this? Is it a huge deal, 10k+ worth of work? Or something done all the time and only a couple thousand? Or is it one of those really complex things that you don't know until you look at a bunch of other details?
These kind of show the side of the room with the knee walls, can't really put a window here:
This is the other side, which is currently a pantry closet, where we hope to put a window (and remove the pantry wall). There is also a tiny window in here looking out to the addition.:
Last, a view out the door and window:
