Old Windows in New Walls
We adore the original windows in our 1949 bungalow and want to keep them even though almost all the exterior walls in our remodel plan are supposed to be bumped out or rebuilt. Is it possible to remove the old windows and then re-install them into the new or remodeled walls?
We can't find any new windows that come close to the quality and feel of the originals and we'd be heartsick to lose them. We've asked around, but so far everyone just looks at us like we're crazy. To us the age and grace of our little house as it was originally built is worth a lot. It needs work almost everywhere from the basement to the roof so we though this would be a good chance to do the remodeling, but I'm having second thoughts even after 18 months of planning with an architect.
