Who makes a quality slim profile frame?
I'd like to put two oriole-style double-hung windows, with the top sash taller than the bottom, mulled together into the back wall of our kitchen overlooking the garden. We're cutting a new opening 60"W x 70"H for this so we'll be using new-construction windows.
To minimize the obstructed view between the two windows I've been looking for models with slim profile frames. Alside makes one, the new-construction equivalent of their Excalibur replacement window, but I understand Alside makes an average quality window at best and I'd like to go with something better.
Okna and Gorell would top my list but I don't see slim profile frame options from them (unless I'm just missing them). I suppose I could step up to a fiberglass window but I think the price really jumps doesn't it?
Any suggestions for a good quality brand/model with a thin profile frame? This in in northern New Jersey.
