Cabin At Little Pine - Marshall, N.C. kitchen

Cabin At Little Pine - Marshall, N.C.

The operation of the bi-fold window over a seamless counter incorporates a natural transition and relationship to the adjoining covered porch. Essentially the kitchen with the extended counter becomes an interactive bar top bringing the outdoor in and indoor out.

Bill thanks for the info.
What did you use to seal between the panels when they are closed, and along the bottom to the granite. I was thinking some sort of brush type strip, tricky without something to but up against. Top and sides could be a standard kerf type insert.
If you have any more photos or sketches I would greatly appreciate it.
Looks great by the way.

did the old fashioned way...foam b/t windows and 2 vinyl sweeps at bottom. also gave owners a little piece of foam, already cut to fit, to go under windows so better insulated for winter...this house was at about 4000 ft elevation.

Interested in the bi-fold window manufacturer.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A granite counter that extends seamlessly from kitchen to patio results in a serving bar that invites you to move outside for a meal or snack. Here, the gentle earth tones of the slab are a perfect match for the warm wood tones found on the kitchen trim and the patio overhang. Though the space feels generous, the window opening is small enough that a simple bi-fold window is all that’s needed. To secure the window, the architect and builder drilled discreet holes in the granite and added barrel bolts to fasten the window securely when it’s closed. A combination of sweeps helps insulate the space.
