Oriel (cottage) window question
I am going to replace 25 windows on my home. Thought I had it all figured out-was going with Marvin Integrity Wood/Ultrex in the front of my house because I really wanted SDLs(outside the glass) in a 4 over 1 window. I am going to use all ultrex (no grids) on the back of my house.
7 of the windows in the front are 3x6 single hung and are reverse cottage (larger sash on top). I have plantation shutters in 5 of these windows made with the stationary divider placed to match the reverse cottage windows.
I just realized that the Wood/Ultrex are not available in the reverse cottage configuration. The all Ultrex are available but only come with grids between the glass.
What are the reasons that windows are configured in that style? Would it look strange to have a standard 50/50 window in that size?
Is it possible to rework my shutters-move the center divider and some louvers to fit a 50/50 window?
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
