My house has a somewhat recent addition (built in approx 1980) that’s set up as the master bedroom. It has 2 big exterior walls (aluminum siding) with 1 window on each: a pseudo bay window that I’d like to eventually replace with faux french doors leading onto a patio, and a strange little gunslit window set about 5 feet up from the floor (and probably less than 2 feet high).
I’m going curtain shopping right now, which is what prompted this question. How much would I expect to spend to knock a bigger hole in the wall and put in a more normal sized window? And how invasive is it? We just painted the room, and in my mind it seems like it would be possible to do the whole thing without messing up the interior walls, but I’m not sure what the standard procedure is.
My current plan is just to replace both windows at the same time, but if this is something I can have done in the $5 to $700 range, I may take care of the silly gunslit window now. Also, is there any chance an ambitious DIYer could tackle this?
