The homes, located on half-acre sites, align with the idea of elevating indoor-outdoor living. “It’s a take on a farm house,” Aldrich explains. “We have modern farmhouse exteriors — so big front porches, wraparound, veranda-style porches.”
Those porches become extended living spaces off the back of the homes thanks to massive, moving walls of glass. “People really love being able to open the doors up and include their porches in their main living spaces,” Aldrich says.
Despite their substantial size, the Series 600 Multi-Slide Doors are surprisingly easy to use, Aldrich says. “They’re heavy, which is good, but not so heavy that they’re hard to operate,” he says. “We’ve got the 90-degree door in the model home, and folks really, really like having windows on both sides.”
“You can really feel the difference between when that door’s selected in the plan and when it’s not,” he continues, “because when you do have the doors, it’s just so, so open, and folks can feel that when they walk into this house.”
