This particular home design was developed to cater to the specific preferences of its owners. As a result, we developed a design that features spacious rooms and high ceilings. For instance, the ceiling height of the great room and entry hall is 16 feet, while the auxiliary rooms have ceiling heights of 12 and 14 feet.

The front entry and entry hall are designed with a large glass surround to give a great sense of the outdoor environment when you walk in. The owner’s sense of style is reflected in the design, as they wanted to continue the indoor-outdoor feel throughout the main floor living areas. To achieve this, we incorporated large bi-folding door systems from NanaWall door systems into the room designs.
