milgard windows - mismatched interior! help!
We are building a house on a limited budget, having splurged on land with a wonderful view. Our builder just installed Milgard vinyl windows (the style is Tuscany, I think) & we are shocked to see that throughout our many windowed house, the opening windows (awning & casement) & the fixed pane windows have very different profiles & frames. The openers are simple & flat (like a Shaker cabinet molding) & the fixed paned are "stepped" like fancy molding. We are horrified but Milgard says this is standard. Thus in our great room, the dominant feature is the 6 huge view windows - too bad they don't match each other! We did not ask the builder if all the windows would have the same style of frames/appearance, as we thought that was a given, since that was never an issue in our previous homes & apartments. The builder just says he's provided what's stated in the contract & technically he has, I guess. He says the siding would have to be removed if we take out any of the windows & we can't afford extra large costs. We don't know what to do & are so disappointed to have our beautiful rooms lowered by a mismatched hodgepodge of windows! Any advice as to how we can make at least the interior of these windows look more uniform? Or how to proceed?
