Where is the home, climate zone wise?

Not sure something that looks correct with black/bronze windows will normally fit with white.

Window and door count? Treat a bank of windows by counting the individual mulled units (i.e. Double Hung - Picture - Double Hung = 3 windows).

Depending on how cold the winters are...thermally broken aluminum might be problematic.

Better prepare for some heavy engineering and framing costs for that 17' opening.

I tend to agree with The Window Nerd.
