2011 Ultimate Beach House, Week 2: Window Installation

April 4, 2011 | By | Comments (3)

We know you have been on the edge of your seat just waiting to hear more about the progression of the 2011 Ultimate Beach House, so without further ado we are so very excited to tell you that the installation of windows by Marvin Windows and Doors, a well-known, quality manufacturer company, began on March 24th. (Amazingly, Marvin has done renovations for some stand-out area residences: the 1886 Armstrong-Quinlan House, the 1769 Colonial Zimmerman House, the historical Samuel Beach house, and now the soon-to-be 2011 Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House.) Their windows are energy efficient, UV Protectant, and have extruded aluminum cladding to resist impact, abrasion and fading—all very important details for a house on the coast! Tyvek, a home wrap that protects the house from weather elements was cut for window openings. It’s amazing how light and airy the house’s inside now feels!

    This is fantastic! Have had such great experiences with Marvin. Looking forward to the next update! I work on a lot of beach properties, so loving all the ideas!

    There’s just something about those dormers that I like. It stands out so well from the other features of the house that it’s the first thing that I see on the photo. If those windows belong to a bedroom, the one who gets to sleep in that room is one very lucky person.

    Are there three stories in this home? If so, what is planned for the third story living area and are there floor plans?
