A House for All Seasons in Bay City
Most of us living in the area around Bay City don’t have to worry about maintaining two homes on one property like the Maine home you see pictured here.
The owners, however, wanted to keep the original summer home (built in 1885) but knew that renovations to make it livable year-round wouldn’t be practical—and would require sacrificing some key characteristics of the old house.
They decided to leave the original house as a summer cottage. The “addition” (the new home) is actually connected to the original house by an enclosed walkway. In order to feel comfortable in the rough Maine winters, it was essential to build comfort (and insulation) into the addition.
It was also important, however, that the two structures look like they belong together.
That’s one of the reasons the owners selected high-performance Marvin windows.
Chances are that you only have one Bay City home to contend with, but you still want to have a home that will serve you in all seasons—even if you’re trying to preserve the look and feel of an older home. That’s where Marvin doors and windows consistently stand out. They combine the best of today’s technology, ease-of-operation, and energy efficiency with virtually any architectural style you can imagine—whether it’s Victorian, Traditional, Transitional, or Modern.
We invite you to take a look inside our Bay City showroom—or come by 3605 S. Huron Road Bay City, MI 48706, where you can see a wide range of windows and doors that can make a huge difference in the look and feel of your Bay City home. You can get ideas and professional advice from the staff. And you can actually put your hands on samples to see for yourself how smoothly these windows and doors operate. And you’ll love how well these fixtures keep your home warm in the winter—and allow you to open up your home to enjoy the fresh air in warmer months. It’s a great way to make your Bay City home a home for all seasons!
