You can effectively seal a double hung window with foam between the pane
that's lifted and the other pane, like is done with window air conditioner

You'll need to rig a latch on the window to make it secure, though, in the
position with the pass-through in place. Otherwise, someone can open your
window and gain entry to your shack.
