Durable and efficient basement windows
We are building a new basement under the ell and replacing windows in the existing basement of the main block of a very old timber frame house. Each part has 2-3 basement windows. Upstairs, we have stripped the exterior down to the frame and sheathing for repairs and can do a very efficient wall assembly, although we are keeping and adding storms to the original windows at the upper floors.
Is it worth the effort to do triple-glazed windows in the basement? What would you recommend?
