Q: My boyfriend just moved into an industrial loft in Northern Liberties, Philadelphia. We need privacy from neighbors by at least covering the lower set of windows. We were thinking of mounting a pole from wall-to-wall to cover the lower half but the right wall is cement so we can't drill in a pole (can we?) and any pole is going to bow in the middle unless we put additional brackets but that requires drilling through the aluminum frame to get to the wood supports on either side of the middle window. Any suggestions on ways to get privacy while still maintaining the integrity of the windows?
