Nestled into the woods on Lake Minnetonka in Wayzata, Minnesota, this 8,000 square-foot, European-styled, family residence features an encompassing radius of beautiful lakeshore that the owner’s wanted to be able to see from as many rooms as possible. As a result, the challenge was to include customized sizes in both fixed and functional, energy-efficient windows and doors that would afford wonderful vistas and stand up to the severe weather patterns throughout the year in Minnesota.
“With the extreme climate changes in our state, quality windows and doors are a must,” said Michelle Martinez-Will of Swanson Homes. “Elevate Casement and Awning Windows and Inswing French Doors* provide excellent insulation to save on energy costs and are built to protect against damage from direct sunlight…Marvin offers the enduring quality that our clients look for,” she added.
The ability to deliver custom-sized windows provided the design flexibility to create an amazing six-bedroom home that captures all that the location has to offer.
