Hi there. This window is 4'6" x 4'6". However, you can order it from Marvin Windows in any size (as long as it's square).

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Tour Sarah Susanka's Newest Right-Sized House
The light from the large west-facing window of the reading area illuminates the core of the house, bringing natural light to the living room. The custom muntin pattern makes the window all the more special.

This is a west facing room, how hot is it going to be in the summer? I do love the window muntins, but I think it would have been better set facing North or East.
