I collected three rather large windows from Craigslist years ago in Syracuse, NY (my hometown), and they have been sitting in my parents' attic ever since. My father will be coming to visit in March, and bringing these gems with him. I don't want to have too many windows on the North side of the house, in order to avoid unnecessary heat loss, but I thought two of them would look nice together and provide a liberal view from the living room. The eyes of the house, if you will. Will you?
