Hello all. I am having a small cottage out built back that will double as a storage building. I have a small gable over the door and would like a half round window in there.
Unfortunately I do not have much space, the rough opening is a triangle approximately 22" high and maybe (I would have double check) 34" wide. I have called around and the smallest half round windows I can find anywhere are 23 1/2" x 11 3/4 " I don't think this will fit will it ?
Does anyone know where I can get a smaller half round (maybe 20" x 10") ? I would really appreciate any advice anyone has to offer, as my whole reasoning for having the gable put in was to have half round window to match the back of my house !
Thanks in advance,

I have several circle top windows by Andersen that meet that dimension in a breakfast nook. These are also called celestory and, elliptical windows. This page shows the non-custom sized available from Andersen: http://www.1stwindows.com/members/andersen/circle_top.htm
They look a little too large, the smallest off-the-shelf appears to be about 24 x 15 5/8. Custom sizes are available from most manufacturers, but you probably will not find what you are looking for on display. The size you found will work if the larger dimension is width. In a true radius round top, the height must be less than or equal to half the width of the unit. So, you may be mis-interpreting the measurements.
If you are really handy, you can build your own frame, and have a glazier cut the glass to insert. That would be the least expensive unit to buy. Some glaziers can make up a frame for you as well. Look under glass in the yellow pages.
