This project began with a typical post-WWII developer spec house in an established neighborhood. Redesign goals included modern lines and contemporary living spaces, a more open feel, and light-filled rooms. Along with redesigned window configurations in existing elevations, new spaces were added – an expanded entry, a large, screened porch, and a glass-walled office at tree-top height. Floor to ceiling windows were installed wherever possible to reintroduce light into previously dark rooms, and to minimize the impact of 8’ ceilings. Marvin Ultimate Casement windows, direct glaze fixed windows and Ultimate Swinging French Doors were used.
