Utilizing a Series 600 Multi-Slide Door to open the back of the house to a beautiful view, these homeowners have committed fully to the indoor-outdoor lifestyle.

Western's products help to define this home by maximizing its best asset (the view) and drawing it into the home, which would have been impossible to do with a traditional wall or door.
