Thanks for your interest in the Lake Forest Park project. I designed the custom Douglas Fir and etched glass front door. It was made by Quantum Windows and Doors in Everett, Washington. Here is a link to a detail photo:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Architect Finne agrees. "Here in the Pacific Northwest, natural light is a precious commodity, and the interiors of my projects are filled with a soft, diffuse daylight that usually comes from high clerestory windows. During the daytime hours, many of my clients do not need any artificial lights at all — the ultimate energy conservation measure," he says. "The high windows are also often operable, so that during the summer months, we can take advantage of natural ventilation."
Finne removed a powder room on the left to open the entryway.
