Smart Solutions

A recent Madison remodel needed a creative fix for a problem window.

The home sits on a narrow lot, making any kind of outside storage difficult. The decision was made to build a storage addition outside of their dining room. The addition would be perfect for their needs, but it would mean sacrificing the dining room window.

Since the window did not offer much in the way of a view (the neighbor's house and a fence), the main tragedy caused by the loss of the window was the loss of light. 

To solve the problem, we built a light box behind the window, installed rope lighting, and then ordered a custom piece of stained glass.

Now the homeowners have the light they would have missed, but this time with a better view!
