Keep my view
notta
February 2, 2013 in Design Dilemma
The window in this picture came with the house I purchased and is leaking very badly. I don't like the window but I do like the open view to look out at my back yard. What do you guys suggest to keep the view, but not break the bank. It's 9' across and is part of a small breakfast area next to my kitchen. Mu current plan is to purchase an Andersen Sliding glass door with 2 side panels. I'm then going to build an A-Frame roof with a skylight on each side to replace the slant roof of current window. I'm going to lose a lot of light and wanted to see if there was another idea before I commit. Thanks.

What your planning is spot on. I would fill the new peak with windows over the doods to keep all that light and view.

There can be many problems that occur from such a window,from seams leaking to condensation problems. Changing the triple window to a door would allow you access to your garden, but also some ventilation in the small breakfast room. Consider an Anderson triple door, so that you can maximize the 9' wall. Post pictures of the exterior so that we can offer ideas on roof lines.
