We are just finalizing our window order right now... and I am so excited about it! I wanted the windows to have the character of on older house, so we decided to do most of the windows single hung (which means they slide up to open) with a grid pattern on the top half. (Like the second inspiration photo) We are also doing a skinny top window with the one diamond in the middle. (Pretty much exactly like my first inspiration photo above) These skinny upper windows are custom, so they add a little to the cost, but we tried to always go with standard size windows so that helped. Also, single hung windows are way cheaper then awning windows... which is great because I love the look of single or double hung better!
