Minimal Corner Glazing on Lakeshore Residence

Okay, Michigan had gorgeous weather this past weekend, which makes us just a little (okay a LOT a) bit excited for summer, the lake, and a little R&R.

This modern lakeshore home in beautiful Iwannah, Michigan, incorporates the best of both worlds: the strength and weather resistance of extruded aluminum for the exterior, and the warmth of handcrafted wood for the interior.

20131011-0725[1]

Oversized windows with minimal corner glazing allow for unobstructed views of the beachfront with a seamless appearance. This glazing technique is used in several of our projects, and really makes it difficult to distinguish whether you are outside or inside at any given time; the views are impeccable.

Directly above the shores of picturesque Lake Michigan, this impressive estate includes several triple wide lift and slide units containing two operable panels. The stunning windows in this estate provide show stopping views of the lakefront home’s beautiful surroundings.

Grabill Steel- Our Unique Hybrid

 

Shop Photo 2

It has already been a busy start to 2017 here at Grabill-from the quoting department to final assembly!

 

We love when products reach the final assembly stage, and we can tie a bow on the project. Most recently, we have a Grabill Steel project getting ready to make its way to our client.

 

 

Our Grabill Steel product is a unique hybrid; featuring a thermally broken frame, with a tubed steel interior & aluminum clad exterior. The substantial frame allows for large pieces of glass, and the aluminum clad offers the flexibility of many different finish options!

Aspen Dream Home Adorned in Aluminum Clad

CC Master Bedroom Hor Overall

This contemporary home nestled in the Red Mountains of Aspen features clean lines and open views that bring the outside in. For the interior, brushed nickel hardware accented the American Black Walnut that was specifically chosen for its natural dark appearance. A champagne anodized aluminum exterior completed the look while offering a low maintenance solution. Oversized custom doors and windows, with heights reaching 12 feet, are a common feature throughout the residence. A sophisticated aluminum clad pivot door adorns the entrance, and massive lift and slide glass walls seamlessly extend the living space beyond the interior.   Direct set, clerestory and motorized awning windows harmoniously blend with the interior while capturing the breathtaking mountain views.
