Why single hung window in a dormer?

sethrameshMay 18, 2011

My dormer is 13 feet from the foyer and there is no way i can open or close it with out using a big ladder every time.

Just curious why do people install a single/double window in a dormer?

Will a picture window serve the purpose?

Thanks

To maintain the look as the balance of the house, a picture window would look completely different and depending on the style of house, it could look completely out of place. Which would through off the balanced look of the house.
