The large bay window also gave the home a more contemporary look and opened the rooms to beautiful views of the garden. 


“It’s a world of difference! We've been using Milgard for over 15 years in the remodeling business and are completely satisfied with the look and performance,” said Mike Asadourian of R.A.M. Construction.
