The hardware for this door is off the shelf barn door hardware. You should be able to find it at most hardware or home improvement stores.

Have fun with yourt project !

I believe the client used a Benjamin Moore semi transparent exterior stain, called Chelsea Gray.

Thanks for asking.

Existing patio at front door - I love how you hid the mecanics of the glass and the wall connection with the design. We have an area 16 ft by 8ft deep one side and 12 ft deep other side. So a recessed patio with front door on 16 ft run. Could we attach something like this only lower profile because roof is low hips? Is this area in photo closed in at glass roof and sides? Really nicely designed. Thank you

We actually used standard barn door hardware for this project. If you look at the image of the glass connector from the other side, you will see that the track is mounted above the door opening and covered with bronze sheet metal. The walkway is open to an outdoor terrace to the north, and the sliding doors open to farmlands to the south.

Thanks for asking,

Dan

Hi

Thanks for your wonderful comment. I sure appreciate it.

This house is located just south of Mount Vernon, Washington on a beautiful piece of Skagit Valley farmland, not far from Anacortes.

I feel fortunate to be able to work in such a beautiful part of the Northwest !

Take Care,
Dan

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Give Me a Wall, a Roof, or a House of Glass
My guess is that this breezeway creates a channel connecting the house to the garage. It's certainly an ingenious way to make sure all the tools find their way back to their homes after various interior projects. Because, really, who's going to pass up a chance to walk through a corridor as gorgeous as this one?
Another big influence on the site planning was the valley's strong southwestern winds. This breezeway not only connects the main house to the garage but also strategically protects the outdoor room.The breezeway has an 8-foot-long sliding door that opens up the view of endless fields on calm mornings, then closes to shelter the patio when the winds kick up in the afternoon. The glass roof's structure mimics the rhythm of the home's metal roof but keeps the view open to the sky.
