Flat Window

Here's the flat window. Holding up to the door there is about a 1/4" gap at the top and bottom of the curve of the door. Think it will work?

I think I'd use the curved version. You'd have a gap at the center of the ends, but I think it would be a little smaller, about 3/16". With the gap at the ends, you'd have less to fill in, just a small crescent under the ends of the frame.

I found one of those narrower full height curved windows (see Zeps post #26 above) I didn't know I had. It looks like in the door there is a horizontal rib about half way between the level of the lock and the top of the door, right where the window would go. What I wonder is, if adding the window would weaken, strengthen or make any difference to the integrity of the door. What do you think?

If a horizontal stringer in the door must be cut to install a window, simply make sure that the stringer is also attached to the window frame.

That will not reduced the strength in that door area, in any way.
