Hello all, so we been in the house for a few months now and my only gripe is that our living room (pics below) doesn't let in nearly enough natural light during the daylight hours. It gets sorta depressing in a way. The living room faces south which doesn't help the matter. So, I have two possible solutions. Solution 1) I was wondering if it's possible to maybe remove the two windows along side the fireplace and widen them for a retrofit. Outer siding is just vinyl with the chimney box outside. The current windows inside width measured apx 19.5" across and the distance between the edge of fireplace to the corner of the wall is 55". I'd like to see if it's possible to throw some 40" widows in there? If that is possible what would be a ballpark number that would cost me to have a licensed contractor do?? Solution 2) install a large window in the kitchen eat-in area pictured below which faces east. Outer wall is just vinyl siding. What would be a ballpark number for that one?
