Hi Sacie,
I have used Accurate Dorwin for a number of years, as the makers of good 
insulated fiberglass frames, and sash, and triple glaze. While the 
embodied energy is higher than Reuben's suggestion, the end product is good.
I have also been interested in Thermothch in the past; I have found it 
hard to reach the company.
I figure that techno support and service is a big part of buying and 
installing manufactured windows, and Accurate Dorwin, from Winnepeg 
area, ranks high.

I have also installed locally manufactured custom built windows, with 
single glazing, and added custom outer storms.
All done in a local cabinet/woodworker's shop.
Probably not as air tight nor with as much R value as a factory window. 
But local.
