Slanting the window for a view of the torrey pine.
In the large window, each 2- by 16-1/2-foot panel of tempered glass mounts to the rafters, which run downward at a 60[deg.] angle and rest on a low outside wall. A rubber gasket and silicone caulk seal each panel; pieces of 1-by-4 trim mask the joints.
Inside is a 14- by 32-foot family room where owners Kathy and John Deal can have informal meals, play the piano, or enjoy games with their sons. The board-and-batten siding of the exterior continues into this north-facing room. A balcony overlooks the 16-foot-high space.
The addition was designed by San Diego architect Peter Rodi of Designbank.
