Residential Custom Home

​​Project Description

A Modern-style home in a rural desert community, this beautiful new build includes a total of 8,384 sq. ft. under roof.  It sits slightly uphill as you approach it and has a very unique exterior mixture of stucco and brick wall surfaces with an amazing landscape designed around water conservation.

With an open and social approach to living, the common area includes the kitchen, living room, wine storage, and dining rooms with expansive ceilings and lots of natural light provided by Windsor fixed and operable windows and sliding door systems.  There is also an open center courtyard off the living area accessed by a sliding door that features a sitting area and fireplace.  It is completely surrounded by large fixed windows.

A sense of calm is immediate as you look directly through paneled windows and doors to a serene back patio that features an infinity pool and covered sitting area.  One feels as if the outside has truly been brought in when noticing the gorgeous views, which have been carefully considered on all sides of the residence by the architect before construction began.

Finally, the office suite and master bedroom have both been given access to a shared patio with Windsor 12’ x 8’ four panel French doors with transoms.

Unique Requirements/Solutions 

The plans called for the look and feel of fabricated steel windows and doors with a modern twist.  We were able to create that look and feel using Windsor Windows & Doors with black exteriors, factory pre-finished black interiors and 7/8” putty-style SDL bars.  The centerpiece, a floor-to-ceiling kitchen window wall consisting of five field-mulled 4’ x 10’ radius direct-set windows and a 90 degree corner, was a major selling point for this spec-built home.
