The backside of the home with extensive glass allows panoramic views of Green Bay, WI.
When Lynn began imagining her new home that was to be built in Howard, WI, she had a specific vision in mind.
That vision was to have floor to ceiling windows on the back of the home, allowing her and her family to enjoy the view of distant Green Bay that was just to the south of them.
Initially, no one besides Lynn thought it was possible, however, everyone involved was able to make it happen and after a lot of hard work, her vision became a beautiful reality.
Another view of the back of the home from a different vantage point.
In total, 74 individual Pella window and door units were installed throughout the home to fill 45 different openings. Pella Impervia® fiberglass windows were selected for the great room that is at the back of the home. The great room faces Green Bay, overlooking a gorgeously landscaped backyard space that includes a patio area and fire pit. The windows in the great room feature window composites (shown below).

For easy access from the backyard space into the large basement area directly underneath the home's great room, an eight-foot tall Pella sliding patio door was installed. An eight-foot tall Pella® 450 Series single panel inswing patio door was placed in the dining room and kitchen area so Lynn and her family could easily walk to the back deck for grilling and lounging. This patio door has an aluminum clad exterior with a wood interior. To fit with the home's contemporary style, a black stain was applied by the painters at our Pella Windows & Doors of Wisconsin paint shop located in Green Bay. (Shown Below)

As beautiful as the back of the home is, the front of the home is equally stunning. To create amazing curb appeal, a Pella Craftsman style door in Real Red with customized side panel direct set windows, designed by Lynn, was installed. The door and direct set windows are nicely complemented by the white color of the home along with the Pella® 450 Series double-hung windows that were selected, featuring a black exterior with a bright white interior.

Inside the home, Pella windows were used in a variety of unique ways. In the basement bedroom and bar area, Pella® 450 Series casements were installed with a black stained interior. Advanced Low E glass with argon was utilized in all the windows and doors to help with energy efficiency.
Pella Windows & Doors of Wisconsin is proud to have been a part of this home build and to help Lynn achieve her vision. Here are some more photos of this beautiful project:
