The opening is 14 feet wide and the folding doors are Loewen.
The wall can be closed or opened with onlyone finger. When itl is 'closed,' a single regular door is operable.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Solfjeld and her team installed Nana doors and bay windows throughout the house, blending the indoor and outdoor living spaces. Outdoor furniture has found a place indoors, throwing the space a few curves.
