Hi. Those are 'tab' pulls from Mockett though other manufacturers make similar ones. See http://www.mockett.com/dp3-dr-6.html. Hope that helps!

Sorry. Just saw this question. It is a terrazzon-like product called Deco-Pour that appears to have gone out of business....

Thanks! We designed the desk and had it fabricated locally so it is not available as a product. One trick is that the power and network cables run up inside one leg and into a pop up jack in the far left corner. No dangling cables!

To clarify, the actual windows used in the house were steel windows manufactured by Windorsky, a company that is no longer in business. Dynamic and Hopes are two other steel door and window manufacturers that I know of. John DeForest

Hi. Good question! That is actually considered a ladder and does not need to meet the stair code because it accesses a space less than 200sf. You should check your local code to be sure it is the same. Of course you may also choose to exceed the code requirements depending on who will be using the ladder. Thanks for asking. John

Houzz Tour: Reading Shapes a Seattle Home

Written words drive the design of a house for aging in place, from a plethora of bookshelves to a personal word wall Full Story

Love the way this place looks, but it's a bit hard to see how seriously they took the "aging in place" aspect of the remodel. Yes, they have a second bath that is universally compliant and an apt for caretakers and the elevator - but the step down into the LR could easily make that room less accessible, and the Kitch banquet seems like it would be difficult to navigate - who knows about the kitchen proper? The current master bath, while ideally located, could end up being useless. Oh well, the views alone could provide consolation for most anything.
