Simply Build It

Firstly there should be no reason why you cant remove the wooden window and have a UPVC one inserted in its place, unless there are planning restrictions stopping you of course.

You can get wooden framed double glazed units made to fit the size you need.

You can adapt most wooden window frames to take a double glazed unit (DGU) by routing out the glass rebate to take the thicker DGU.

How about fitting much cheaper secondary glazing to the windows?
