What Houzz contributors are saying:

The design and creation of the Franks' home was a collaborative process. "Everything in the home is made by an artist, whether the paint selection, the woodwork, the artwork or the landscaping," says Phyllis. Cabinetmaker Charlie Kleeman, who framed the Franks' first home in Templeton, California, 30 years ago, crafted all the clear-grain Douglas fir cabinetry and interior trim around the windows and doors by hand. "Our cabinets throughout the house were designed, refined and perfected over months of drawings and meticulous measurements," Phyllis says. "Everything works and fits perfectly."
Operable. While most windows installed in a backsplash are fixed (do not open), you can install operable windows that can open and close, like in this photo.This extra bit of ventilation is great in a part of the home that experiences so many cooking and cleaning odors.
