Wondering about window treatments - Some of the smaller windows appear to have vertical blinds. Is that the case and if so are all the upper windows treated that way? Do they rise?

Blinds Direct Canada
I would recommend Ripplefold Sheers/Drapes depending on the light control you need . As for the top treatments I would go with Hunter Douglas Silhouettes they can make them in those shapes .

Love the striped ottoman type benches in front of the window - Would you please share with me where you got the striped benches near the sliding glass doors? If anything, at least the name of the striped material? I absolutely love it :-) Thanks!

These ottomans were from Home Goods but the fabric is readily available. It is just a French-blue ticking fabric. Good luck!

Patio doors as windows - Considering the same thing in our family room to maximize view. Any concerns about safety when doors are open, especially with kids? Did you consider a rail of any kind? Did you do anything to modify the door hardware (ie remove outer handles, fix screen in place, etc)?

Thanks for the reply. Could you clarify how the doors were made more secure?

Sliding doors above base board heaters? - It looks like you used 2 sliding doors above a bank of electric base board heaters. Good way to maximize view and air flow from the large screens of the doors, without the space needed outside ( although you have it ) to allow for crank out type windows. I know you can not purchased sliding windows themselves that large, so they must be doors. Do the sliding doors need that much head room above before you can add a bank of windows above the doors? I am looking for ideas to fill in a high cathedral opening that will look out to a beautiful view of the lake. There is a long 11 foot wide deck outside of these newly planned cathedral windows, which holds the patio tble and chais and seating. Window suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks Celia. I will run this idea by my builder and we may indeed do something similar. The focal point in our reno.......is the view. I had been scrutinizing window styles and design and was caught in the problem wanting windows that maximize view ( no grills, no bar in the middle as in single hung) , must allow air flow, but doesn't require so much space outside when cranked open because of the deck right outside. We need the base board heaters and the only wall to put them on is going to be the newly constructed cathedral wall because of the lay out and open concept plan of the room. The sliding doors above the base board heaters may just be a winner. We wouldn't actually walk through them because of the step up, but they do offer a solution to my design dilemma. I was delighted to see your idea! Thanks again.

Custom Home Planning Center
Reggio registers makes floor boxes with the heating element in them if you wanted to make the opening flush with the floor. http://www.reggioregister.com/prod_detail_list/recessed-radiation
it would be possible to (3) 8'' micro lams over the doors any thing smaller would flex to much. You have major roof load hitting the span on the right side that could reduce the load and be a little more structural sound with a post directly under that load
