The shutters were custom made by a local millwork shop. They rotate to open and shut on a pivot hinge.
Swinging shutters on open porch spaces.....great for blocking sunlight yet providing air flow
shutters swivel to let in or shut off air flow
Great indoor/outdoor room Love the open doors
Love the shutters to close and open on a pivot
up the chimney was the goal. That's why the opening is wide, and the back of the fireplace has angled sides to reflect the radiant heat out. If you've eve been by a campfire, or sat in the sun, you know what radiant heat is. It's different from heating the air, which heats your skin. That's called convective
Sorry. Not really. Fireplaces generally are an energy waster. Unless you get a sealed unit, they pull your heated air and send it up the chimney. Unless you're heating your house via only a wood stove, let's just not bother talking about efficiency. It's a luxury item
Obviously WAY more space and money than we have, but like the ceiling and the open windows. Also, saw brick floor? Would that be too heavy? Might be neat to tie in the brick look from the fireplace?

We plan a total renovation, I.e., roof off, most interior walls changed, new windows and doors, new heat and air, etc. Would it be more economical to tear it all down and begin anew, or "remodel?"
I love the setup to the left. Countertop, large drawer, open space....maybe I just love the baskets;)

relocating a bathroom, try to site it on an outside wall with windows. If windows are not an option, installing an operable skylight can allow for the fresh air and natural light needed to make the space feel comfortable.

Kitchen and Island looking west toward drivecourt
upper cabinets, the wood on the island, and the open space on this side of the island. My question is about the shelf between the stove top and hood. I understand that it is part of the Viking. Is it a full shelf, or an open grate? I'm wondering if the air flows through it to the hood, or around it.
around when the drawers are opened. The drawer slides are heavy duty and full extension, with a nice soft-close feature.
It is the twenty inch riser with shelf. The shelf isn't very deep and the hood is quite a bit deeper, so the air flows around it.
Love this beautifully designed kitchen. I really believe that the newest in kitchen design is headed for the look of no upper cabinetry and more open design with an abundance of windows. This based on the contingency that the kitchen has an ample bit of space for lower storage or a walk-in pantry

I'd have the furniture positioned differently but other than that I absolutely love the air space and the comfort is amazing. A

garden.Set your thermostat higher during the day when you are out. Keep window shades pulled down during the day to block sun.Use fans and open windows instead of air conditioning to cool your home on not-so-hot days.
Cut energy and water bills. A hot summer can mean huge water and energy bills, thanks to constant air conditioning and a thirsty garden. Do what you can to cut down:Fix leaks in faucets and irrigation systems.Water your garden in the early morning or evening, when you will lose less water to evaporation
