Great question about what type of windows these are. I love how the windows go from the top of the ceiling all the way down to the floor. The rustic table looks amazing against the wood floors. The trim, rafters, and chandelier tie everything together. I also love the black screens. It seems like you'll get a nice breeze coming through without the bugs or dust. I'd love to do something like this in my own home. I love the feel of a spring breeze coming through the window. Having a good screen will help me feel at peace. Great job on this project! http://goodneighborscreens.com/

Oh wow, those are some beautiful windows right there, especially the window screens. How thick are those screens? Just looking at them has me thinking about doing a mobile window screen repair on my screens. The main reason is because of how my cat scratched it all up. http://www.roysmobilescreen.com

Good morning,
Yes the code required tempered glass in the lower sashes, however I had the entire unit tempered. The lower sashes are disabled for saftey as well.

I no longer have the drawings to give an exact measurement. I would guess it is approximatley 14' wide and 20' long. It is part of the main kitchen which is located to the left of the table and is seperated by an island. This helps to make the room feel bigger. Thanks! Mark

That's what I was wondering as well. I would love to do this in my home but I'm worried about the structure of the 'window wall'. Maybe the strong in between beams help hold everything together. I love the idea of glass windows and doors though. http://www.canadiancomfort.com

The table was built by Bryce Ritter. He just sold his business. However, check his web site, there may be information about the new owners. The business is located in South East Pa. Good luck!

The chairs and table where built by Bryce Ritter. www.Brycerittrer.com. Bryce builds 18th century reproduction furniture using reclaimed materials. Great guy too! The kitchen cabinets in this kitchen, and some of ower other photos, are built by his son who has his own shop and produces cabinets in the same manner.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Double-Hung Windows Offer Singular Traditional Style
A great advantage of having the upper sash operable is the ability to increase airflow. It is an easy way to ventilate a home, as the interior air will rise up and escape as it warms up. Double-hung windows are also quite versatile. A combination of a fixed sash held tight to the ceiling with double-hung windows below can create an open and airy porch-like space.
Chris Hill added this to Single-Hung and Double-Hung Windows
Double-hung windows give you more options for altering the airflow.
Buckminster Green LLC added this to Lower Your Heating Bills With Some Simple Weather Stripping
Around windows. Double-hung windows have two sashes that move up and down. Leaks can happen around the sides, where the sashes meet each other and where they hit the sill. You won't be able to use the light trick for windows. However, a wet hand can work, since it makes it easier to feel a slight draft, especially if you turn on bath fans and the kitchen hood to depressurize the house. You can also move an incense stick around the edge of your windows and watch for the smoke to waver. The copper strip above will work for the sash-sill and sash-sash contact; the nylon brush type is good for where the sashes slide against the jamb. Once you've upgraded the weather stripping on your windows, consider adding storm windows to the exterior if you have single-pane windows.
Bonnie McCarthy added this to Why Cleaning Window Screens Should Be Part of Your Winter Strategy
What Not to DoWhen cleaning the screens, proceed with caution. “If you use anything harsher than a soft sponge or light bristle brush, you’re going to ruin them,” Greer-Coronado says. “If you push too hard against the screen, you’re going to damage it.”
Laura Gaskill added this to Love Pets? Here’s What to Look for in a House
3. Screened windows. Cats love lounging in sunny windows, but open windows, especially on upper floors, can be hazardous to them (and to little dogs too). Look for sturdy screens in every window and screen doors that are in good condition.
