What type of block system is this? - Is the wall system a single-wythe insulated block? I've heard of products like Omni Block that have foam insulation inside the block so no additional insulation is needed- so you can have exposed block on the inside like this without having to do 2 layers of block with rigid foam between

Hello. The block is standard concrete masonry unit construction - fully grouted cells with rebar within. The home is in Southern California with specific seismic / earthquake requirements that didn't allow us to use insulated block methods at the time. We didn't insulate anything but instead used the concept of a Tromb Wall for heat absorption and radiation into the home. By considering this passive solar design technique, we are able to heat the home in the morning and not have to heat the home at night. It works quite well. Thanks for asking...

It's actually Polygal (http://www.polygal-northamerica.com/) - a polycarbonate translucent sheet material. In our application, there's a fluorescent tube light within the wall sandwiched between 2 pieces of Polygal that act as our "undercabinet light". We also used it in our outdoor shower as a privacy panel - this image may help demonstrate how light passes through it.
It's a great material - we've used it in many different applications. Thanks for asking! Jeff - Jeannette Architects

Yup! that's our son Griffin. He's about a block taller now. He also has several cameo's during the construction phase. Being the Owner/Architect's kid had it's advantages... check him out at http://www.jeannettearchitects.com/portfolio/residential/kelty - his first shot is picture 33 on his self appointed "clean up duty" run ~ thanks for noticing!

The countertops are Quartz ~ Lagos Blue by CaesarStone. At Jeannette Architects, we are partial to specifying Quartz for the durability and minimal maintenance factors. There are many different colors and shades from which to choose and pricing tends to run parallel to a nice granite.

The garage doors are manufactured by Clopay. Materials are Dark Bronze Annodized frames with SolarBan 60 Low-E Glazing to match the other door and window glazing in the home. This home was designed in Long Beach, California where temperatures are mild to warm in the summer. The idea of the doors allows excellent visual connection to the private courtyard as well as solar heat gain into the home, warming up the concrete floor slab to heat the home naturally through the evening hours.

Hi There,
Contact Bryce Parker Garage Doors at www.glassgaragedoors.com. They do excellent quality doors and have good tight gaskets and weatherstripping. Pay attention to the glass options and be sure to let them know where in your home they are going to help with recommendations. To fight the bugs, we installed roll down screens on the outside. Ours came from http://www.bayscreens.net/ - reach out to them if you'd like, hopefully they have installers in your region. We love ours. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sectional doors. The most common type of garage door is the sectional, which is constructed of panels that slide up and overhead. Sectional doors have two distinct advantages over more monolithic single-panel doors: they don't require any space outside the garage to open and each panel has its own connection to the door track, increasing sturdiness.
Samantha Schoech added this to Open Walls Widen Home Possibilities
Indoor kitchen, outdoor dining room. This glass garage door is so modern and clean; it makes sliding glass doors seem positively old fashioned.
