Main House

This project consists of a garage/studio and a main house. The space between the buildings is defined by an existing apple and pear orchard. On the landward side of the house, the south-facing porch is protected from the prevailing northerly winds onshore. The house looks out over the water through the long row of windows on its north face, wearing its roof like a baseball cap on backwards. The house is symmetrically arranged with bedrooms, bathrooms, study, entry, and loft spaces placed on either side of the great room. Natural light is introduced through the wall of French doors and transom lights facing the water, transoms at all interior and exterior doors, double hung windows, and clerestory windows.

Our preference is for Window Craft windows and Northstar Woodworks doors, both from Washington State. Good luck!

There are a lot of quality window and door brands out there. Some of the most customizable and exacting windows I’ve worked with were Marvin. When it comes to custom, they can build you just about anything.

I regularly use Hurd windows and doors as well. I feel they are one of the best value windows and doors that I’ve worked with, very good quality and good price. Also, they can do quite a bit of customization if you need.

As with most products though, your satisfaction will ultimately depend in large part with the vendor you choose. In many areas, there may be more than one vendor or distributor that carries a particular brand. Make sure you find a reputable and capable vendor that you feel comfortable working with. The choices and options available with windows and doors these days are almost endless. They should be willing to spend the time with you to educate you to what those options are, their benefits or shortcomings, and how those selections will directly affect your project.

4. The 80-inch-tall door. As much as there is a rationale behind the 80-inch-tall door, it makes little sense in a room with an 8-foot ceiling, and even less sense in a room with a taller ceiling. It's just that the proportions are all wrong, and there's simply too much wall space above the door.Solution (shown): If you plan to use an 80-inch tall door, think of that space above the door as an opportunity for, say, a transom like this that allows light and air to filter between rooms.
