Site Built (custom) windows


Greetings-

I am in the process of refinishing my (very old) entry door which is 1-3/4" solid oak. It is an archtop featuring a round window opening at the top which is broken into smaller glass sections with vertical and horizontal muntins. The glass is single pane and many of the pieces have cracks in them which warrant full replacement. Instead of replacing all the individual sections, I'd like to gut the muntins completely and fill in the entire opening with a round window and then lay new muntins directly on the glass surface. Are there places that build custom sealed, double-pane glass units for this type of application? I did some internet searches but couldn't find what I was looking for.

Any help would be appreciated!

Jimmy

Actually, building round IG's is a relatively straight forward procedure and I would bet that if you contact a couple of local glass shops you will find one that will do it for you.
