windows - could you please tell me what size the two windows are on the side wall. I have a 12x12 bedroom that faces south. That part of the house is rounded and has 3 windows, two that angle, one to the SE, one to the SW, and one straight south. the south one being alittle wider. The east wall doesn't have any windows at all. I've just demo'd that whole room, removing all the 130 yr. old plaster and horse hair. Once the room was demo'd, along with the existing closet, there was a beautiful chimney that was exposed, hidden in the wall of the closet for 130 yrs. I stood back, visualizing the what was the closet, now becoming a bench seat nook, repointing the brick, which I've almost completed by myself. maybe some narrow bookshelves up one side, and the brick on the other. cabinets built in under the bench. I will reframe a closet on the east wall into the north corner, still leaving a long enough wall on the east to put a 5' 3/8" x 1'9'' Anderson, awning window in. It will be at the same height as the other windows, but of course will not come down as low. I originally wanted a few smaller ones with chunky moulding inbetween, but there is electric running the outside of the house, so I thought this would work, and get the grills that go inside, changing it from contemporary to more traditional. I'm decorating with a Coastal theme. any thoughts?? thank you! Leeanne

Oh.. I'll also be using glass paned french doors on the closet, with some sort of sheer material. I figured the glass will give it a more "open" feeling. maybe instead of sheer, I should do a verticle stripe in a blue and white? the whole room will be white, accept for some very wide, dark verticle beams that I will sheetrock up to and leave exposed

I'm also totally confused about what to do with the inside of the new constructed closet. Just 1 rod I feel is such a wast of space. It will be a full view closet with two doors of about 40 something inches each
