Tiny attic window faces South. Historic rules.
Christina BrineApril 16, 2014
My attic is completely open... I wish to finish it out as a masrer bedroom and bath. Three sides of the attic each have one small square window. It's so dark up there! Since the back attic window faces South, I'm looking to replace it with something larger. Problem... I like in an historic district... and the entire back of my house is clearly visible from a side street. So, all changes need to be approved by the Historic committee. I've been collecting books on bungalows and wasted hours googling online... but am having a hard time finding window(s) that complement the windows that I already have. So far... my favorite option is to copy the 2nd floor window of a yacht club circa 1909. However... I don't life in a boat house... or even on the water. The Historic association might have an issue with that. BTW my house a 1929 bungalow... I have no idea who manufactured it. The last photo is the view of my house from a cross street. This town is rather strict about rules. Which is a good thing..... all this research has led me to smarter renovations. So, I won't complain. Anyway, if you have advice on size and shape for my attic window... I will greatly appreciate it!
