    take a flexible, not stiff putty knife, and slide it around the inside and outside between the window frame and the stop. check to make sure there is nothing holding it like a nail or screw. sometimes people will do that for security. from the outside you should be able to get a pry bar like a wonder bar under it and start to pry up. if it stops slide the putty knife around it again. once it's up some grease in the tracks will help a lot.

    supposely window replacement saves energy, therefor saves money. BUT in a house that old it might not even have insulation. That would be more of a savings then replacing windows. Specially in the ceiling. You can have it blown in or do it yourself. I believe Home Depot rents the blower and sells the insulation for it. Insulating the walls would require a professonal service.

    Its a slide horizontal window, and as predicrted we got our snow today! 3" of fresh heavy packing snow over everything. Gave the window a good yank and out it came. I guess it had something to do with the weaher...

    And the house was a model home when they built this area. Only house on the block with all hardwood floors, all insulated, finished basement, air conditioning, ect...

    Thanks for the tips. I am going to go make a snow man!
