My old house (1830) has unusual windows on the second floor. They have one movable sash that slides up into an opening in the wall. The problem is energy efficiency and dirt from the attic falling in whenever the window is opened.
I would like to replace them with energy efficient windows but don't want to tear out the wall that hides the window when it's closed.
A perfect solution would be a modern window with a vinyl "pocket" that could be slid up into the wall cavity. I don't think that would be difficlt to make but since it is unusual may not be cost effective.
