Contemporary renovations and beautiful, modern residential architecture

Someone far wiser than we are pointed out that a woman's shoes are the window to her soul. What about her windows?

Someone far wiser than we pointed out that a woman's shoes were the window to her soul. But what about her windows? What do they say about her? We think that quality windows, like good shoes, say a lot about a person. Windows are a control layer and a crucial part of any work of Architecture or good remodeling because they are your connection to light and air. The project House for a Dinner Party  is  featured on the Marvin Windows website. (Yay for us!) These white oak windows replaced white vinyl windows that were trimmed out with red oak. We salvaged the red oak trim and picked out white oak windows exterior clad in aluminum. We divided the lights on the top sash. These windows have a U value about .33. Thus they are energy efficient but they are much more. We stained the white oak to match the 110 year-old, old-growth red oak trim. First time visitors say things such as "How did they save and fix the old windows? They are BEAUTIFUL!" We then know that we as the Architect and the Builder have done our job. (May the cheap vinyl windows we replaced RIP.)
