Sliding sash is internally glazed, most likely. Center section can be removed, most likely. Geometric is internally glazed, most likely.

Not "un-doable" but you are certainly upping the complexity at this point. I would be very careful and get some glazing sleeves or good gloves if you are going to be handling this glass.

WOW I really appreciate your help and thank you for the cautions. I actually just got a quote from an online place and the IGU alone is like $200 for one glass. Sounds high to me but I will get more quotes and NGL there is a chance I might still let a pro do it (that is and always be will be option). I would much rather get the glass from a local place and see what I can do first.

Also those sashes are definitely all internally glazed bc I removed some of them already and the arch one on top is as well bc I can see the stops. The hard part I find was cutting the old glaze so Ill develop a plan for that :)

For sure i will post updates. I'm in Rockland County and this place is in Staten Island so I'm not there daily.
I think rn considering how much the IGU can cost I will go back this weekend and measure again with multiple tape measures just to be absolutely sure of the dimensions.
measure thrice and cut once right!

Hey WOW or anyone else, can someone tell me what those two little slits on the bottom
of the arch window is for in the outside pic?
If you look closely there are two little black slits/openings. Are they for water drainage?
Are they weep holes?

$200 is not expensive when you are talking about glass. A sealed IGU requires some relatively specialized equipment. They aren't making these in a garage.

WOW thanks as always for your clarification. Also coming from being totally clueless to being a little more educated on this subject, I have to agree on the pricing. Also I think I just found my supplier! It is a mom and son shop and they couldnt have been nicer! Best part is they are like 2 miles from me.

Sounds like a win-win.
