I’m looking for 36” wide by 24” tall vertical sliding windows and I can’t find any. Does anyone have any help on where to look or have some built at? I’m about to make a winters project of building all new blinds to my own specs
Look for storm window manufacturers in your area. The ones that make the aluminum storm windows can make them. I found a home improvement place that I knew that did aluminum siding, then found one of the workmen. I explained what I wanted, how it wanted it made and he sent me to the storm window place. It took several trips ad detailed explanation of what I wanted. But I dealt with the front office, finally got to talk to the man who would make them. He knew exactly what I wanted, even had a better design than I had.
That place is now gone, if I do this again, I know to go to the back door first and talk to the people that will be making it.

You want a window that is 36"w x 24"h, and you want it to slide up and down? In my stand I have openings that are 36" and 48"w, but only 12"h. I used Deerview glass, hinged windows. Two were their standard size, two custom made by them to my specifications. They open up and latch out of the way. I've seen sliding windows in a lot of stands and eventually they become difficult to operate. Tracks get dirty, and as much as we like to think of ourselves as great carpenters, our builds eventually shift due to the conditions we put them in and openings bind. The really simple hinges and latches that come with the stuff Deerview provides will always work.
An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.
All of our blinds have folding plexiglass windows now and thr ok but the new stands will have a 8” shooting rail below the window and curtains above them so folding windows simply won’t work and they will have to be vertical sliders. We hunt in bottom land thickets mostly we’re you can’t have many blind spots due to not wanting to be bobbing your head back and forth so I’m going to have two 36” windows butted up to each other on each side with a 2” brace splitting the windows. I knows it’s an odd set up but after years of fighting these set up and cussing them it’s time to try a new method. I’m building them out of 1 1/2” tubing so I’m not concerned with the stand shifting any and they will have floor entry doors to avoid having a door in the sides to add blind spots. I haven’t decided if I’m just going to buy trailers to mount them to or simply add axles to the the lower frames for easy movable set ups but that I still need to work out.
I’ve tried for 6 months to find a company to custom build me some blinds but I’ve come up empty handed and it’s time to do it myself
