In Progress: Contemporary, Lake Michigan Residence

20101123_9008Grabill is in the final installation stages of a contemporary window and door project on the coast of Lake Michigan. In order to complete the installation to the highest standards, Grabill has made multiple site visits in recent weeks.  Windows and doors in this Lake Michigan residence are hand-crafted with an alumsapele_titleinum clad exterior, and Sapele interior.  Sapele is an African Mahogany wood, commonly used to make fine furniture. The beautiful and unique grain will make each product one of a kind.  Wood grain type can be specified when choosing the Sapele wood.
This product incorporates innovative corner glazed units and oversized glass.  This allows for large expanse views of the lake-shore.
