Lakefront Home Offers Stunning Views with Wood Windows and Patio Doors

wood-windows

This custom-built home sits lakefront on Lake Norman in North Carolina. The residence, belonging to home builder Jeff Ross, is a mix of styles, blending contemporary and traditional. With large wood windows, straight lines, symmetry and a muted palette, this lakefront retreat is timeless yet forward thinking.

Windows

Because of the beautiful views from the house of the lake, expansive windows were a must. Jeff wanted to soften the front elevation with all wood products. JELD-WEN recommended our Siteline® casement wood windows and patio doors. Siteline products are made with AuraLast® pine, a surface-to-core treated wood that provides protection against wood rot, water damage and termites. The Siteline windows allow for visual lines to be consistent.

To capture that perfect view from inside the home, JELD-WEN provided several units in direct-set frames. With direct set, the windows could be the size desired and offer the most optimal view.

Jeff explained, “I wanted to bring the lake into the back of the house. What helped make that happen was JELD-WEN product. It helped me create the perfect symmetry that I wanted from the start.”

Interior doors

Jeff chose flush birch interior doors for a contemporary yet traditional vibe. The doors have a thick 1-3/4″ solid core feel and were stain grade to provide some of the softer accents of wood in the interior of the home.

Patio doors

The main entrance door is an IWP® custom patio door. With large windows on either side and a pentagon shaped set of windows above, natural light flows through the entire entrance. Additional patio doors are at the back of the home. This is an area where interior and exterior merge. Siteline sliding patio doors provide the ideal transition from interior to exterior. Jeff requested narrow stiles and rails to portray slim lines.
