A winter project. We like air flow in the bedroom at night. And aren't prepared yet to install another AC unit in he bedroom. And wanted to prop open the rear window of the 30DS at night without getting eaten by bugs. This combined with a reversible roof vent fan should do just fine for us.
I added a retractable window screen from
The product installation assumes there is a traditional window frame and requires a one and a half inch existing wooden frame to mount the roller assembly (upside down on the top) and side slide guides to. I purchased the reverse model in bronze. That allows for space behind and between the screen allowing the pleated shade to stay in place.
So this screen box is not flush to the wall. It creates an indoor window sill also used as a shelf.
This install required i build a wooden frame about an inch wider and taller than the window on each side. I installed the retractable shade in the frame, removed the valance, installed the frame on the wall around the window with right angle clips, and replaced the valance to the frame.
The pleated shade stays so we can prop open the window with the wooden dowel, pull down the rolled up spring loaded screen (has magnets built in the base to hold it down) and still be able to use the pleated shade for privacy. These pictures show it better. I plan to add either mirror film or tinted film to the bottom half of that back window eventually.
Black marks on wall are Velcro strips to store to wooden dowel
