talk with window suppliers as it is significant
the cost is the different aluminum moulding required ti hold 2 pieces of glass and if necessary the vacuum requirement to reduce thermal transfer
The very big advantage is the sound reduction that is obtained ( can be more than 20 dbl) if noise is a problem so if you are in a very noisy environment with extreme weather temperatures then double glazing must be in your consideration
Read manufacturer directions thoroughly. Measure smallest height and width dimensions of existing aluminum window frame for rough opening at several locations. Order retrofit window 1/2 inch smaller on each side. Remove old glass and center aluminum stave. Trim fin of new window as little as possible so it fits against outside face of confined edges of outside facing part of existing frame. Drill holes in frame as manufacturer instructions dictate. Test fit window and mark where outside trimmed fin ends on wall. Measure for shims at gaps between new and old inside frames. Install shims with Lock time PL caulking. Caulk existing window frame corners, holes from removing center stave, and a 1/2 inch bead within the area marked on exterior wall. Place window and push into caulk. Make sure there is full contact with caulk. Drill pilot holes at screw locations drilled earlier, Place silicone caulking on screw heads and screw window in place. Square up window while screwing. Trim inside of window and plug holes from screws. Good luck.
Some single hung windows do not allow for operation of the screen up and down, if that's what you mean. Look at the exterior of the window where the screen is located and see if there are tracks above the screen. Many single hungs have the screen placed under the inoperable sash so it can only be removed, not operated.
First of all, why did you post in cars and trucks? Secondly for anyone to be able to help you, they would need you to paint a better picture in their head of the problem. it sounds to me like you need a professional to come in and inspect where the water is coming from and how it can be corrected.
If you just want a half bath (sink, mirror, toilet, lighting, vent, and flooring, you can build a small one for about $6,000. Remember you will want to finish the walls, and add baseboards, and a door.I would hit the seller up for a reduction in sales price. Nobody has upstairs bedrooms without baths anymore.
