Not sure. We are the railing manufacturers and did not do the glass.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Incite Design added this to How to Stick to Your Remodeling Goals
Prioritize what you want. When you make an initial list of wants, there will likely be many competing items, but don’t start whittling it down just yet. You’ll want to put it aside, discuss it with family or friends, post a discussion on Houzz etc. Talking about your ideas can help clarify the project. Designers can help you understand the impact of what you want to achieve (and often help you find efficient ways to get there), but you are the expert on your life. Sometimes it pays to document how you do things around the house (cook dinner, entertain). This can help pinpoint areas that are frustrating. Those are the places to concentrate on so you can get the most bang for your buck.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The Intriguing Effects of Exposed Framing
Natural ConnectionsThis addition to a glass house in Connecticut essentially comprises two elements: wood and glass, both referencing a sylvan landscape. The architect has plainly exposed the roof’s black spruce structural members, a simple move that harks back to the wooded site in material and form. The broad horizontal overhang moves the eye toward the surrounding forest. The repetitive structural bay mimics the pattern of trunks, and it’s a bright overhead field of color that counterbalances the dark Brazilian walnut floor and recalls the airy forest canopy. The slender ceiling joists contribute to an overall sense of lightness and a delicate, hovering roof plane.
That being said …“Having your priorities written down will allow you to stand back in the heat of the moment and evaluate if a new option will get you closer to your goals or farther away. In my experience about 60 to 70 percent of the choices that get made on the spur of the moment cost more than sticking to the original choice.” — Jeffrey VefferVeffer’s advice about writing down what your priorities are for a remodel before you even start is spot-on; one expensive doorknob or pot filler added later can throw off your plans and your budget. Keep this one bookmarked right next to Taylor’s article. Full story: How to Stick to Your Remodeling Goals

This is a great way to extend usable space over a slope or sensitive riparian zone. I'm planning on doing it separated from the house since there is a large swath of usable flatter yard between the two.
