At first glance, this window looks like your normal, average, everyday window. It's pretty but it doesn't look like it's holding any ground breaking secrets. We thought the same until we got up close and personal with it and low and behold, this window proved to be pretty awesome indeed. Check out the up close view to see what we mean.

When renovating this older building in the Kansas City metro area, instead of installing traditional windows (which would have required a great deal of brick work), this exterior frames were mounted to the wall.

Each window has a metal casing that bolts to the exterior brick and holds a pane of glass and a wood frame to the outside of the building. Aside from looking like the perfect napping place for a cat, this is a fun twist on making an older space feel new and fresh.

Do you love the idea or think it's bound to be drafty? Let us know in the comments below!
