This Southern Cottage was set in a new traditional neighborhood development in a mid-sized Southern town. As our Southern Living Building Partner Showcase Home, it was the perfect blend of traditional and energy efficient design. We believe that a home doesn’t have to be huge to be amazing.
The shotgun style lot and 2100 square foot home called for both indoor and outdoor spaces to be efficiently designed to maximize the livable areas. The Integrity windows allowed natural light into the house and really opened up the shotgun style design. The windows looked amazing with the board and batten look of the home exterior. We love when an energy efficient product also has such high design quality.
Our showcase piece was the 10-foot Marvin Bi-fold door. It maximized the useable space of the home by connecting the living room to the screened-in side porch and private patio. “Wow-factor” windows breathe life into a room while offering an added design element. This home really showcased how to balance wow-factor while maintaining a cohesive look.
Our Marvin dealer was as committed to our timeline as we were and the Marvin website really helped us research the right Bi-fold door for the challenging dimensions of our home.
