The black tar paper around the window openings is for durability and to protect the window sills. As you can see below, the corners of the openings have water and ice shield for further protection. The InLine Fiberglass windows are triple pane low-e casements with fold down cranks and colonial grids between the window panes. All of the windows in the Hansen House have white exteriors and Oak laminate interiors, except for the windows in the garage which have brownstone exteriors and Oak laminate interiors. Using the window orientation as a reference point to help determine where the sconce should go, our Project Manager had the great idea to put the sconce on a 2×4 and have the homeowner move it up and down the wall to help him visualize where he wanted it placed. These exterior shots show the timber framed side porch, without the roof on it yet, and the installed windows. The Marvin Integrity Center Hinge French Doors with sliding screen are found on by the side porch and off of the front of the great room. This custom entry door’s arch matches the arches of the existing barn and mill house. The arched door is located under the timber framed entry way which is part of the wrap around front porch.
