if you’re interested in energy ratings, etc. the U-factor is 0.28 (U.S.)/1.60 (Metric/Sl), the SHGC is 0.29 and the Visible Transmittance is 0.49. in accordance with the latest by-laws and energy star ratings, they are all low-e, argon double-panes.

the stairwell window is massive. i love it. the middle pane is operable – it will tilt inwards (at the top) to allow for airflow.

also – we have the makings of a back porch. We had to bump up the portion over the basement stairs because they don’t really like it when you carve out a support beam to allow for head clearance (as in the previous incarnation). I’m thinking we should do a built-in bench seat with a lift-up lid to hold the recycling.
