Modern Country Home Desired High Quality Windows

Light, Airy and Open Concept

Will Steed, Owner of Will Steed Homes in North Texas had a strong vision for this modern Hill Country home: Light, airy and an open concept. 

He wanted the windows to maximize the glass space and minimize the frame and stay within the project budget.


Choosing The Windows

Painted Style Line® Series vinyl windows were just what the project needed. He used Bronze exterior colors in the front of the home and Tweed colors in the back. The windows were a mix of Picture and Casements.

“I am tired of the massive rooflines you see everywhere,” Will Steed told Milgard® Windows & Doors. “We wanted to bring the hill country into the space of the home with the views, interior beams and wood, very much in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright who was our inspiration.”

Site topography was a challenge as the home was being constructed on a rocky hill. It took a lot of digging to create the five levels of land required for the floor plan.


Casement Windows Do The Trick

“We are seeing a lot of Casement windows in current projects,” said Steed. “It’s really gaining in popularity. People just don’t want a center meeting rail obstructing their view. My customers are also looking for a higher quality window when creating their new homes. They also want operation ease, efficiency and a Full Lifetime Warranty, which is why I use Milgard.” 

Will Steed is an award winning home builder in North Texas. He chooses high quality, dependable, Milgard windows and patio doors that he knows his homeowners will be happy with for years to come.
