Would like a round window


I don't know if I'm at the right place but I was trying to look for someone to put in a medium to large ROUND window in the side of my mobile home. We are doing renovations and are putting up a new wall but want a round window their instead.

Are you asking how to frame the wall to receive the round window?

+1

Mobile home wall thickness are usually thinner than common replacement windows so you will have to account for that as well.

Can you post up a picture?

Another issue you may run into is on the outside trying to attach it.
What's on the outside now? Vinyl, metal?
If it's an older home with the metal siding there's nothing but insulation under it.
A regular house has wood sheathing.
