I want to convert a 16' by 16' x 8.5'h attached screen room to a three season room and want to retain that "open" feeling. I'm thinking of a three foot kneewall and five sets of triple windows plus a door.
My first thought was to use exterior sliding storms, but the missus wants something that better matches the Anderson double hung house windows. I looked at the matching Anderson casement windows which will open completely, but the feedback is that casements are more prone to failure (especially if anything moves), will become annoying to operate and are quite expensive. On the other hand, I'm concerned that using double hungs will make it feel more like another room in the house, instead of a screen room. Either way, it's becoming a pretty expensive conversion.
I'd appreciate any suggestions.
