Flip Flop House: More Glass!

The Flip Flop House is getting its glass!

To make the glass guardrails for the staircase, they are first making templates out of plywood.  The pieces of glass will be large and heavy, so they will definitely want to abide by the “measure twice, cut once” rule!

We had the skylight custom made by Sun Valley Glass in Los Angeles:

The aluminum door fames were shipped from Switzerland, while the glass for the doors came from a glass supplier near San Diego.  This saves a lot of money, since they aren’t shipping big pieces of heavy glass from Europe.

Once on site, the frames were glued onto the glass:

Some of the sliding doors have been installed!
