    Default What do you call.... component to a barn)

    Is there a term for the series or row of fixed pane windows that usually sit on top of a large barn door? They are typically seen on the older wooden barns. I really want to put that on my barn but don't know what they are called. Any thoughts?

    Thanks! No, they do not open, just let light in. I love how they look. And since I went with a wooden structure (in lieu of metal), I def want to add that detail.

    check out the doors on Double R Mnf website. I think they are under stall accesories, end wall doors. Really nice.

    If you talk to a glazier, they'll know what you're talking about if you call them transoms or clere storey windows.

    In human houses, transoms are traditionally over doors, particularly interior doors. Traditionally they opened and closed.

    Clerestory windows generally are right under the roof and run parallel to it.
