Walls of Windows For Your Midland Home?
When are the walls in your Midland home more than just walls? When they are walls of windows!
Midwest Home Magazine recently featured a home in Edina, Minneapolis that uses this “wall of windows” design (You can read the article here). It’s a newly built home that takes advantage of the vistas on a sloped, wooded property by creating a room that’s all views. The owners call it the “Minnesota Room,” a porch-like space with a lofted ceiling, Douglas fir timber beams, an imposing stone fireplace, and massive Marvin double-hung windows on three sides.
It’s a great example of a current trend in home design that blurs the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living. But it’s not just this room that lets the outside light and sights in. Here’s a look in the opposite direction, showing you the homeowners used Marvin sliding glass doors as a transition between the casual dining area and the porch-like sitting area, which takes the views and light deeper into the rest of the house.
One of the nice things about this room is that—because of Marvin Window’s superior energy efficiency, the homeowners can enjoy the room year-round in comfort. In cases of extreme cold, the homeowners can close the sliding glass doors to keep the interior more comfortable. The doors also make the “Minnesota Room” a great place to have a private conversation.
