Gaulhofer Windows
Hi there. Gaulhofer Windows only contributed the windows and doors to this home, so I don't have much info about the rest of the project. But I will say that this home is located in a very snowy region, and the home owner is an architect, so I'm sure drainage was taken into account. :)

What a work of art! This house is so well integrated to the mountains with it's juts and peaks. Perfect mix of materials,etc.

Hi there - sorry for the delay in responding to your comment. These are our Fusionline windows, which features this aluminum cladding over the wood. You can read more about the Fusionline engineering and styles here, if you like:

the color of the aluminum is RAL 7016 matt. It's also called "anthracite grey matt".

I love the railing and would like to know if I can use the concept - I am noting how the glass is mounted to side pillars, is it also in a steel support at the bottom? I have a log cabin with log frame railing and would like to install glass. However the logs are naturally irregular so I am wondering about a secure way of mounting glass panels. Any suggestion would be most helpful, Many thanks. Sharon from Ontario Canada .

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Cabin retreat. These are traditionally built with log and field stones with centrally located fireplaces.Updates: Warm wood structures are being replaced with engineered laminated beams with more dramatic roof lines, but the result is still appealing.
3. Strong setting. This house makes the most of its beautiful location. The architect has taken a cue from the mountainous setting and inverted the typical roof line. I love that this home mimics the valley of a mountain range, as opposed to the peak.
Susan Stieglitz added this to Butterfly Roof
Though this looks like a butterfly roof, it is actually comprised of two skillion roofs, which both slant inward. The advantage of this is that the vertical space between allows for a nice clerestory window.
