New Window

Is it possible to add a new window to an existing house? I don't mean replace, but an actual new window.

Re: New Window

Yes to any house. If yours is stick built - 2by 4 walls then a hole is made and depending on the size of the window a header is installed to bear the weight above the window and the rough framing is made and window installed. One should be sure to locate any plumbing, heating, air cond, or electrical to determine if they are in the way and consider the additional cost of relocating either or picking another place to install the window.
