Entry foyer with transoms over openings
This is the foyer of a small cape that we renovated. By adding the transom windows above the cased openings we made the space feel larger, lighter and more open. Photo by Nancy Hill.
What is the size of transoms? I have lower ceilings and I'm adding a wall I would like the opening to have a transom but not sure if 8" transom by 56" would be too narrow.
I agree, both transoms appear to be 8" or so. We build this model (TR-1) all the way down to 6" as necessary. Also notice how the crown is well integrated into the RB-3 type casing to maximize the size of the transom. Good job. See this model at http://goo.gl/krtWmb.
Upon entering this Connecticut home, you are greeted by doorways with transom windows on either side. They make the space feel larger, lighter and more open.

The real trick is the window header height, not the ceiling height. If it is new construction you can push the header above the window into the floor system above. This is likely what they did here.
