The Bay Window defines the room -- amazingly - Excuse my naivete but did you need to get a permit for the floor to ceiling bay window -- is it similar to "bumping" out a room which I read can be very expensive.

Thank you. While the image is not clear - the Golden Gate Bridge is in the distance!

Very well done! I grew up with the same view only higher on the hill, in Kensington. I have always thought that a bench with a bay would be perfect for homes like these . I rarely saw them done.
I commend your talent. Simple, functional and comfortable.

I am surprised about no permit though.

types of windows - I love this window seat! Are these casement windows or push out windows? Does the middle window open at all? Who ever did this window seat and storage below, did an awesome job.

the side windows are casement, they center windows are fixed. this is a wonderful Mom's quiet/retreat room. the drawers in the window seat add storage and character to the space with that decorative pulls. who wouldn't love a view of the Golden Gate Bridge?

the blinds are a honeycomb pattern - you might want to check out Hunter Douglas - they make a great product

Thank you that helps. Is it comfortable when you are setting against the window? I am asking because I am thinking of raising my window a little to allow a back rest for pillows

Hi - are those pillows custom or can you order them standard?

This is the type of window I have in my informal LR. It is about 120", a real "picture" window. I welcome the light on dark dreary days, but it faces the street, and open for all neighbors, walkers, etc. to look inside. I current have full drapes, but I want to utilize the ledge --convert it to seating, or display area, but also want some treatments to keep it warm in our Seattle winter months. they are casement type windows, completely vinyl framed, so not easy to get hardware in there. Suggestions, anyone.? Very much appreciative.

They typically are custom built so that they fit in the window perfectly.

You can get window seats that are one piece - where the seat flips up (more
like a bench ) that I've seen people use in a breakfast nook before.
