how to attach slats so you can clean under them - This is so amazing that I copied the idea for our front entry - we used frosted glass with fixed windows (they are bathroom windows, so frosted was best anyway) and now we are trying to devise a way to do the slats where you can clean the spider webs and glass under them. How did you attach these? Are you able to clean the glass under the slats?

Thanks so much for any advice you could give!!!

That metal overhang is cool! What material and supplier is that from?

Sorry it took so long to respond... The metal is PAC-CLAD® Petersen Aluminum Panel with a Dark Bronze Kynar Painted factory finish.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This house in San Diego, Calif. incorporates wood slats into the garage volume. The spacing of the horizontal wood pieces is evident in the glowing garage doors (combined with a translucent plastic or glass, no doubt) and the guardrail that extends to the right and the second-floor French doors. A closer look ...
Josh McCullar, AIA added this to Great Compositions: The Language of Walls
Thick concrete walls anchor and ground this home to the site, while a very thin wood screen lightens the mass of garage and extends like a veil past the facade to become a balustrade for the second-floor balcony. This is a language of layered translucency.
