I've been searching around this forum for a little while trying to learn some of the terms. I'm new to most DIY, and we bought a house two years ago. Unfortunately there were many things the home inspector didn't investigate, one of the most frustrating being our windows. We have one window in our bedroom that seems to have the only breeze, and it is the window with the problem. It is an old house (1921) and the window is very small. The two small storm windows sit on top of each other horizontally, but the inside of the window, the sash, sit side by side.
(The old owner was a carpenter we heard, so we guessed he maybe was able to do it himself). When the one screen is down (horizontally) to let in air, the windows side by side cut off half of the screen, meaning we have one quarter or this small window open. My nephew who studies carpentry told us to just get another screen and put it on top of the other one and take out the sashes so that we could have a breeze, but I tried and the screens don't fit. He told us a customized window would cost an arm and a leg. So I am trying to figure out if there could be any other solution? Again, I am new to this, so feel free to ask me any questions, I will try to answer with the correct terminology! Thanks so much, Maggie
