Rehoboth Bay home welcomes sunlight and spectacular views from all directions
This striking beach house, on an island in federally protected tidal marshlands by Delaware’s Rehoboth Bay, is lined with windows that welcome sunlight and spectacular views from all directions, almost like a big enclosed porch. Its budget-friendly architecture and windows highlight the amazing setting with durable expanses of glasses that can stand up to the high winds of the Atlantic coastline.
The house uses passive solar techniques, such as large eaves that protect the windows from the high summer sun but let the lower winter sun to fill the house with light and warmth. Inswing French doors from Marvin’s Elevate Collection, and casement and awning windows from the Elevate and Essential collections, met the owner’s tight budget while providing superior energy efficiency. These durable products feature pultruded fiberglass, proven to resist fading, chalking, scratching and cracking in all types of climates—the best value for long-term performance. And with their expansive glass and clean, contemporary style, they put the focus on expansive views of the home’s beautiful setting.
