Kitchen Patio Door taller than windows - what to do?

2 months ago

We are getting ready to build a deck outside the kitchen and replace a window with a sliding wood/fiberglass french door. Our house is a 1951 Cape Cod in the NE (for style and context).

This is a mockup of how the patio door would look like installed. It's a standard Marvin Elevate door which is about 72"W x 82H". The window height is about 72". So there is about 10" height difference.

We are not in a place to replace the windows yet but is there any way we can case the window to match the door height? Any other ideas for alignment? Thanks!
