Passive Windows

The Glo passive windows PW were selected for high performance values and multiple air seals. In addition, our client wanted to keep the home comfortable through the changing seasons and receive their passive house certification. Warm wood interior frames and stainless steel handles add beauty, operability and performance to this modern design.  Durable aluminum cladding provides protection from the Idaho weather.  A large lift and slide door is used to provide amazing views of Lake Fernan, while keeping the home at comfortable temperatures.  Full light entry doors, french doors and a lift and slide door provide natural light and multiple entry points throughout the house.
