Good Questions: Help With Our Loft Windows?

leslie
Sep 8, 2008

I am an avid AT lover and have just finished a serious makeover to my first home. My wife and I bought this loft in SoMa and have been tirelessly renovating for three months. We have found solutions to many problems but can't figure out what to do with our lovely loft windows...

...They are around 10 feet tall and around 8 feet long. We have thought about top-down roman shades, and sliding drapes, in order to allow sun in and keep some out. We are DIY'ers and would prefer to do anything ourselves. Any suggestions?

These windows are our only source of air and light. They also function as our fire escape.

Simply putting plastic over them didn't work – can you say a bit drafty.
