09 May People Who Live in Glass Houses…
…fully experience the joy of letting the outside in, a home with walls of glass that brighten the day – and one’s spirits – no matter the weather. Most of our Lindal Cedar Homes, from Classic to Modern, feature large and even floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors that seem to enlarge the home, while maximizing views, optimizing passive solar gain, and affording the owners a new understanding of the changes in season, sun angles and even the phases of the moon. Window walls erase the visible barrier between the outside and the inside, and so many of our homeowners have remarked that their window-rich homes are good for their psyche and sense of comfort and well-being.
Window walls also create passive solar benefits, capturing heat from the sun in cooler months. We analyze the site to orient the home for optimal year-round solar management, which also includes design strategies such as large overhangs and pergolas to lessen unwanted solar gain in warmer months.
Let us help you create a beautiful, happy and healthy home!
