INSPIREDby Marvin®



August 31, 2023

The owners of this renovation project made the decision to construct an addition that would effortlessly blend the old and new, as well as seamlessly connect the interior and exterior spaces.

The young family of four has always cherished their peaceful and private backyard, making it a central part of their daily routine. However, they noticed that most of the windows in their house faced the street, and the only way to access the backyard was through a single patio door in the kitchen. To enhance their living space, the homeowners made the decision to renovate their current home in a way that seamlessly connected the old and new, as well as the indoor and outdoor areas. This renovation included the addition of three spaces: a primary suite, a dining room, and a screened-in porch, all of which featured large windows to provide expansive views.
Architect Jon Hensley opted for Marvin Elevate® windows and doors in a recent renovation project. The tough Ultrex® fibreglass finish on the exterior’s durability and ease of maintenance, as well as the interior’s natural beauty of wood, were the deciding factors. Hensley was able to incorporate larger and more modern Elevate® Casement, Awning, and Polygon windows, as well as Inswing French doors, in the addition. In the existing house, Elevate Casement Insert Replacement and Double Hung Insert Replacement windows were installed. Marvin provided all window types in contrasting styles and complementary finishes. The use of large floor-to-ceiling windows with narrow profiles now allows the family to enjoy expansive views of the backyard.
