    in this house, I most liked the kitchen/dining/great room area. so i’ll focus my comments there.

    as to the kitchen, I like the way that they designed it. in so many “luxury” homes they seem to design ridiculously large kitchens. the kitchen in this house doesn’t waste space and a lot of stuff is all within a convenient radius. I also like the layout of the cabinets, especially in the vicinity of (what I assume to be) the cooktop. I especially like the shelves. I wouldn’t use the shelves the way that they are used in the photos, but they can be used to keep spices and stuff that you would use for cooking readily available. I also like that the kitchen has a folding window to complement the folding glass wall system in the great room.

    there were 2 things that I did not like about the folding glass wall system in the great room. first, they should have used wider panels. wider panels not only gives you more glass area, but this house is in Colorado, which gets cold in the winter. the performance in a folding glass wall system is in the glazing and not in the framing. so you want to maximize the glazing area for more light and better overall thermal performance. larger folding glass wall panels also better complements the overall “modern” motif of the house.

    the second thing that I didn’t like about the folding glass wall system in the great room was the way that they framed the rough opening. I think that they should have used a steel beam header. that would have allowed them to get rid of the post in the middle and they could have had an uninterrupted opening, which would better achieve the “indoor outdoor connection” objective.
