The home was built last year and the builder installed double windows to reduce noise in the home. The problem with the windows is that a person must slide open the first set of windows (No latch installed), unlatch the second set and then slide it open to get air into the room or possibly escape a bedroom. The windows were manufactured by ABC windows. The latch is difficult to access and the windows in the bathrooms do not have a handle to grasp to open them. The handle would interfer with the first set of windows. You have to place your hand on the glass to open the bathroom window.
Have you come across this configuration? Do you know of a possible code violation?
