I plan to use some old wood sash windows in a coop. They are double-hung, but I am going to install each sash as a separate window. I want them to slide upwards to open. How do I install them without having to buy jamb liners?

Also, I am going to have either concrete floor or raised wood floor. Which is better and why? Which would be better for temperatures in the winter? Is it true that concrete floors pull heat out of buildings?

Thanks!

Don't think you can...the liners are what allows them to slide.
Do you plan to install inside the coop?
But you could top hinge them...still have to frame with some stops and a slanted sill.

Post some pics of coop, inside and out, where you plan to install these.
Dimensions would be of great help.

It is a new coop project. Starting from scratch. The coop will be 8x12 ft. I can measure the windows and take a picture.
