Business Description
My name is Bud Dietrich and I am an architect located in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. I am licensed to practice architecture in Illinois, Florida, New Jersey & Wisconsin and I am a certificate holder from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB). Since 1996 I have worked from my home office and provide full architectural services exclusively to the single family residential market. My passion is to transform my clients' houses into their homes. I strive to have the "new" home accommodate my clients' lives without fighting them at every junction. I look to add curb appeal to encourage a beautiful streetscape. And I design any addition to look and feel like it has always been there.

Our projects have won numerous design awards as well as having been featured on television (CBS News Sunday Morning, HGTV, CLTV, etc.), in magazines (Better Homes & Gardens, Trends, Womans Day, etc.) and in books (Taunton Press).

So don't hesitate to contact me if you're looking to transform your house into your home.

Is it safe to enlarge a doorway an extra 45" on a load bearing wall? The total length of the wall is 32', currently with two 4' openings in it. I want to enlarge one of those openings to 90". Is it safe to do that without adding another beam? This is on a two storey house.

dgingera - That's something you should have a local architect take a look at.

This project was done many years ago so I don't recall. There are many like this one on the market so finding one should be easy.

Yes, there are manufacturers that supply these types of windows in the TB area and throughout FL. These can be a really good window for the FL climate for a number of reasons. The best thing for you to do is work with your architect to source these windows and learn about their advantages.

Good luck with the house and hope you get to post pics when it's all done.

Thanks. We replaced 28 windows in our 1925 mediterranean a few years ago with PGT impact resistant single hung and love them. They were able to mimic the style of original windows with the four top panes typical of Old NE St. Pete. Was hoping they might have a tilt style. Plan to work with them on French sliders for the house.
