  1. I don’t have a name for the shape of the window.

    But I’m curious about the whole building. without a photo of the whole I can’t say if the window is original to this ‘house’. The modern bays, double/hungs and the hatch surely speak to frequent remodelings. Very simple eaves – might be a remodeled barn/carriage house…. with beloved parts added.

    I’d date the window to either Federal or ‘turn of the century’ depending on muntin and sash profile!

    Looking forward to the answer…..

  2. It’s a gable window, and it looks like the two halves were Gothic transom windows either in a different location on this renovated building, or in another building.

  3. Certainly is funky! I like Paula’s theory of two Gothic windows pieced together. What about the diminutive hay door below??

  4. I didn’t think the bar between the halve was thick enough to be 2 pieces…. but I’ve see Gothic half windows like that so it makes sense… waiting for the answer!
