I would like to replace 2 oversized windows in my kitchen so I can put counters in front of them. The problem is that replacing them with shorter windows would leave about 8 inches of the exterior of the house with no siding. The house was built in 1953 and is covered with verical cedar siding with a vertical grooving pattern. I have not seen the siding anywhere else. If I try to patch the exterior it would look awful. What can I do?
