<![CDATA[Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re lucky to live in one of the most magical places on earth-- a temperate rainforest. The lush forest, smoky mist, gentle brooks, and cascading falls are what we call our backyard. So, why shut all of that beauty out? Make nature (and light) a huge part of your new home.
From wide water views to soaring forest panoramas, we build our new homes with expansive windows that frame nature in all its glory. With our oversized picture windows, it’s like displaying living artwork in every room of your house.
Our windows also provide another function-- letting the light in. Take a look at these ideas of how you can frame nature and let in more light:
Skylights Makes Your World Brighter
Let the sunlight in with skylights. We love how these skylights flood the kitchen with light from above. Skylights also prevent you from feeling shut off and isolated inside of the kitchen.
Try Transom Windows
One row of windows is ordinary. Two rows is divine. This extra row of transom windows maximizes the wall space, and visually increases the living room area.
Another trick we love to employ is the open floor plan. That’s because it lets the light move freely between spaces.
More Windows than Walls
We love how this home feels like a grown up treehouse. Who needs walls when you have this view? This room is equally gorgeous at night under the twinkling stars.
Private, Sun-Drenched Baths
Don’t settle for one tiny window in a bathroom. We make it possible to maintain privacy while clothed in nothing but light.
Enhance Natural Light with Recessed Lighting
Of course, we can’t just rely on natural light– especially at night. Well-placed recessed lighting can enhance the atmosphere of a room. Unlike dim floor lamps, recessed lighting creates well-lit spaces that maximize design options.
