Is It Possible to Have Larger Windows Installed in Bedroom? Good Questions

ellabee is right. The wall underneath a window is never load-bearing, so if you were to replace the existing window with a taller one (but the same width), you'd be doing the absolute minimum of structural work. If the new window is less than (I think) 18" off the ground, though, you'll have to use tempered glass, in case someone falls through it.

To make windows wider, though, you have to replace the header and load-bearing studs, plus you'll be doing more work on the exterior to repair the siding/stucco/whatever.

Also, as new homeowners, the best investment you can make is a subscriptions to Angie's List.

And a note to Sweet Eyes' people: Your dog is precious and adorable. I know how I would feel if people didn't think my dog was cute and that's not the case at all. It's just a simple case of little dog overload for those of us used to cleaning slobber off the ceiling, plus that cat has a moustache. Congratulations on being in the final and representing the dog side of cute! I bet he is the love of your life as well he should be.

Plus, at least he's not a poodle ;)

It's a myth that you can't have a big dog in an apartment. Mastiffs and greyhounds both are notoriously sedentary. I second the movement for more big dogs. And I second Ron Swanson!

I can't believe I voted for the cat but c'mon. A green eyed cat vs yet-another-little-white-and-fluffy, no contest.

Lovely paper cut by Julene, and one of my favorite poems, but perhaps not the best sample to advertise. The estate of e.e. cummings is notoriously protective, and if this image gets around she may be hearing from their lawyer.
