Lake Glenville, NC
This project affectionately named "Casa Melanzana" (melanzana is Italian for "eggplant" referencing the purple exterior siding color) is a 9,500 sf estate comprised of guest house, main house, and garage. Quantum provided a myriad of Signature Series Windows, and Single and Double Hinged Doors in Sapele with a natural light finish.
Signature Series Windows feature back to back mullions, 1 1/8" muntins and subsills with 6" legs beyond side jambs. True divided lites are found throughout all windows and doors. The push-out sashes have oil rubbed bronze Bronze Craft handle and strike hardware, and four bar stainless steel friction hinges. Window details were specified with interior ovolo sticking and exterior ovolo glazing stops. Sash weather-stripping is bronze.
Wood framed insect screens are interior inswing and removable, with overlay hinges, ball catches and brass knobs finished to match sash fasteners.
The doors throughout this project are complete with Stanley full mortise butt hinges, with 4½" x 4 ½" square corners in a dark oil rubbed bronze, and Sapele door sills. All product glass is Cardinal LoE2-272 with black Edgetech SuperSpacers.
