That sounds wonderful! It sounds like you have ample space for a bifold door. If this bifold door also acts as your main point of entry, you'll also want a regular door at the end, so that you don't have to open the whole bifold mechanism to get in and out of your porch.

Many manufacturers now carry bifold doors and windows - this particular one is a bifold window by Loewen - so your choice will largely depend on available finishes and hardware, as well as price.

The owners acquired the sculpture some time ago, and I don't have the source. Sorry I can't be more help.

Looks great! Just wondering if the area on the deck was an extension onto the deck or was the deck built around it?

The upper and lower decks were built after the window was installed.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The original kitchen was in the same galley style it's in now, but there was an attached covered mud porch area on the deck that made the space feel awkward. Ogawa and Fisher integrated the mud room area into the kitchen for additional space.
