How To Hang Curtains from Loft Window Frame?

Good Questions

Q: Hi! My partner and I just signed a lease on this loft apartment, and our unit faces directly into another unit's windows. I would like to hang curtains, and am willing to DIY them out of sheets since it's looking like I won't be able to find any for sale that are long enough. (Though if anyone has any suggestions for inexpensive extra-long curtains, please let me know!)

My question is, how would you hang curtains from windows that high? Does anyone have any ideas on how I could use those steel frames as rails? Should I drill into the brick to affix a curtain rod? Any and all suggestions would be wonderful.
