sharonna misha designs - Here's a some what similar sink, but it doesn't have the raised back... http://www.kitchensource.com/kitchen-sinks/kr-sks1510.htm

Readytore on Etsy is known for having a lot of refinished period sinks and pluming and would be a good resource as well. They also have a variety of fun claw foot tubs. I hope this helps. Have a great weekend!

wow, thank you so much Dura Supreme Cabinetry!! really appreciate you taking the time. I would definitely want the built-in backsplash, I think that's what makes it! so the etsy link would probably be most helpful for me... again, thanks a lot!

And when you are not entertaining what do you do? People thinking about installing these kinds of doors are smart to come on this website and check out other people's comments. I would hate to have to open and close an entire bank of heavy doors every time I had to leave the room for a half hour to go do laundry, or take a shower. No one spends this kind of money to use these doors just for parties and Thanksgiving. This is quite an investment and is meant to be user friendly. My suggestion would be to keep walls on either side of the doors and install long large windows matching them that open and have screens. These doors are not practical for just opening for fresh air, while you run around your house doing household chores. If you live in a wooded area it only takes 5 minutes for something to crawl in while you're in the bathroom and surprise you later when you least expect it. Take it from one who knows and used to live in Santa Fe, where there is much inside/outside living. The enormous insects I found slinking around my house, even in my bed, made me a real screen lover.

Phantom Screens
Opening the kitchen (as well as the rest of the house) to the outdoors during spring and summer months just keeps on growing in popularity. And like so many people have noted in the comments, bugs of all kinds can often be a deterrent that makes us close the doors and windows at the time when we should be enjoying that long-awaited warm weather! :)

We at Phantom Screens work on countless projects just like the ones shown above - homeowners get our teams to install retractable screens on doors, windows, porches or patios throughout North America. There are now so many options to choose from, depending on your location and your needs. From no-see-ums & yellowjackets to just delivering shade, retractable screens help to achieve the balance between wanting to fling the doors open and keeping the pesky bugs out.

Check out our Houzz page to see some of our finished projects to find out more about the options!

I live in partial earth home built into a small hill and it is awesome as far as heating and cooling all year long. The front faces south and we have huge windows in all the bedrooms and 2 sets of sliding glass doors to let in lots of light. There is a large overhang (south side) to block the intense sun in the summer but it still lets in plenty of sunlight in the winter. East and west side are both partially in ground and the north side is completely in the ground. Love the geothermal cooling in the summer (almost never run the A/C). We need to install some solar tubes on the north side (both bathrooms- office) as they are rather dark- that is the main drawback we have yet to deal with. I always feel very safe when there is talk of a tornado. The fellow who built the house back in 1980 also built 3 other earth homes in the area...he seemed to know how to build homes that were designed to conserve energy. We have never had any issue with water....all rain water drains away from the house. We also have many huge mature oak trees near the house that also provide lots of shade. At some point (mid 90's) they added a 3 car garage onto the north side.....so we walk down into our house from the garage. It's surely a different arrangement but we are used to it now.

Love the idea of the bookcase door, but simply cannot afford it at this time. When I priced it out, it was about $1500 not including installation. I would put it in the loft when the door to the attic will be.

The super neat offices in designer rooms always make me snicker. Where are the papers? The rubber bands? The paper clips? The filing cabinet? Printer paper? Replacement ink cartridges? The goose neck lamp? Who actually works at those shiny, uncluttered desks?

If the appliances are built-in as part of the flow of the home, you may prefer to keep them exposed as an added design feature!
