The site this Waitoki family home sits on is wider

at the rear than the front, therefore to maximize the width of the house at the

rear, architect Joseph Long designed the home widening at the back. A feature became

the large multi slider with a custom-built 100-degree complex internal corner –

a true statement piece.

“The style of the Windowmakers joinery I chose is

very modern looking, square and chunky – which compliments the building’s

form and chosen materials. Use of the over the wall sliders stacking outside of

the cladding gives a full opening so there is no corner structure or post in

the way.” say Long of LTD Architectural.

“With the external slider having an unusual

internal corner of 100 degrees, Windowmakers was the only company that I felt

confident to work with to make this functional.” says homeowner and builder

Ryan Thomas, Director of Armada Construction.

Heidi Johnston of Windowmakers was delighted at

the outcome. “We love the finished product and think that the design has helped

maximise the space and take this home to the next level,” says Johnston. “With

young children in the home there are also two skins of safety glass so the kids

can play care-free. Their biggest challenge ahead will be keeping the glass

clean!”

The Thomas family had a tight deadline with a

baby nearly due. “We only chose suppliers with an excellent level of service

and that we could trust to deliver on time. As a construction company,

Windowmakers are by far our preferred joinery partner,” said expectant mother

and business owner Beck Thomas.
