Can you please tell me who built the beautiful butterfly window? - I understand that you designed the window - well done - absolutely stunning! I am looking for someone to build one (or two), can you help me with a contact or web site? Thank-you.

Thank you for your kind remarks, squiffy! The mahogany butterfly window was designed by Archer & Buchanan and crafted by David Thorngate of New Castle, DE. The window hardware was custom designed and hand forged by Michael Cauldron Company, Inc. or North East, MD. Best of luck with your project

@ Linda Dooley :
As a source of magic and fantasy as an adult who has the money to afford such indulgences and luxury form working all their lives , I would think. this would be the ultimate gift of magic and goodness for me to leave for my grandchildren to even use as an ultimate home? It is stunningly designed and structurally amazing so why NOT use it as a primary home for generations to come after you. It would be the most amazing thing.?

Thank you very much for your kind remarks! Unfortunately we do not have any information about the standing lanterns because they were chosen by the home owner.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Custom light fixtures in the reception area lend period flavor; textured stucco inlaid with slivers of roof tile cloaks the fireplace. An arch and rafters made from Douglas fir define the ceiling and add to the air of exquisite craftsmanship.Timber framing: Summerbeam Woodworking, Oxford, Pennsylvania; interior and exterior millwork: French Creek Woodworking, Elverson, Pennsylvania; lighting: Vintage Lighting, Malvern, Pennsylvania

4. 'Hobbit House' in the Pennsylvania CountrysideInspired by the quirky hobbit dwellings in J.R.R. Tolkien's books, this incredible home in Pennsylvania embraces the fantasy of these stories but brings it into a practical realm for the family who owns it.

Isn't that curved beam just great? But I do want it to look more like what I imagine a hobbit hole/house would look like. The more I've thought about it the more I think it probably wouldn't have any squared off corners. But I do like the attention paid to all the details found in this particular home.
