Friday Fun: Windows and Doors

I’ve always believed in keeping windows curtainless (so you can admire the view) and doors open (so that friends can come in at any time). Some of the incarnations of doors and windows below take this to a whole new level, but I have to admit I dream about owning something like this…

Friday Fun: Let in the Light!

One of the downsides of winter above the 45th latitude North is that it gets dark so quickly! Plus all the fog and cloud which render the sun invisible for days on end. So here are some houses designed to let in as much light as possible.
