Windows and stone veneer in elevation (X-post)

andydad123December 2, 2011

We have the following elevation in mind for which our architect drew up the plans. 2 of our bedrooms are on one side of the entry door and face the street. The living room is on the other side. We had agreed on 5' high windows (more light, more ventilation). Now that the contractor started to frame the windows, he is suggesting making the 2 bedroom windows 4' high for privacy reasons. Since we plan to put stone veneer starting right under the windows, should we reduce the height of the living room windows to 4' as well? We would like the living room windows to be tall for more light. Would reducing the height reduce the light a lot? Or is it okay to have some stucco between the stone veneer and window on the bedroom side of the house (make the windows 4') and not on the living room side (leave the windows 5') ? Appreciate if people can share their opinions on what works better.

A 4' window would be consider short by today's standards.

You are only, hopefully, going to build this once. Get what you want.
