When it Comes to Entry Doors, Manufacturers Aren’t Afraid to Go in Opposite Directionsopens in new window
It might not be the sexiest category out there, but entry doors are far from closed and locked off from innovation. On the surface, today’s six-panel doors might be, well, six-panel doors, but even so, it’s what’s underneath a door’s skin and all that surrounds it that’s changed. Other new doors show innovations on their surfaces, such as wrought iron designs and eclectic styles with hinges that pivot instead of swing.

A Kitchen Transformationopens in new window
I hope you all have a copy of my latest issue of “Living” - our September 2021 magazine is on newsstands right now and it features a beautiful story on the latest transformation project at my farm - a kitchen renovation. During the past year and a half we've all spent more time at home than ever before, and for many of us that meant changing the way we work. For me, many days are filled with phone calls, video conferences, and various virtual appearances and broadcasts. Earlier this year, I decided to transform the first floor of a guest house, so it could function more as a production work space and studio. I repainted the walls and cabinets, replaced several appliances with Viking, extended the center island, added deep shelves for displaying antique ceramics, installed new French doors from Pella, hung shades from Bruce + Hansen, LLC, and decorated the room with my personal collection of copper. The entire kitchen was transformed and modernized and it looks great. Enjoy these photos and be sure to read more about this renovation in "Living."

New French Doors and Shadesopens in new window
Replacing doors and adding elegant and functional shades can really transform a room. In my last blog, I talked about the latest project at my Bedford, New York farm - the renovation of a kitchen in my guest house, so it could be used for video and print shoots. Among the changes, I replaced the French doors to the terrace with new ones from Pella and adding beautiful sheer rolling shades by Erik Bruce Inc. These updates really completed the space, and I am so pleased with how everything came out. Enjoy these photos.

Power Breakfast: 9 ideas to keep in mind during COVID recoveryopens in new window
Iowa Housing Needs Tim Yaggi, president and CEO, Pella Corp. Iowa’s population increases have consistently trailed the national average. Without accelerated population growth, our long-term prosperity will be constrained by the lack of people to fill jobs. For businesses (and arguably for states and cities), growth is a critical indicator of health, and even their odds of survival. Growth is imperative, and if growth cannot be supported in Iowa because of the lack of an available and qualified workforce, investment priorities will shift increasingly toward other states with deeper labor pools.

Originally the townhouse of the merchant Robert Dickey, the decorous Federal-style dwelling was built in 1810 near the island’s southern tip, when nearby wharves bustled with trade and lower Greenwich Street was among the city’s poshest addresses.

Easy-Slide Operatoropens in new window
Pella’s Impervia line of casement and awning windows has added a new window operating system, dubbed the Easy-Slide Operator. This new component allows for smooth opening and closing without the need for cranking. Using a ball-bearing system and a Kevlar-reinforced belt, the discrete hardware can be placed on the jamb (for casements) or the sill (for awnings) and requires only five pounds of pressure to activate. The curved horizontal tab has a thickness that reduces pinch gripping and pressure points. An internal brake system secures the window in place at any point. Finished with a heavy-duty powder coat that resists chipping.

Unless you have owned your house for a number of years, you may never have had any need to think about replacement windows. The logistics and functioning of windows are rarely something that homeowners need to think about—at least until something goes wrong. Dated styles, air leaks, water infiltration, thermal leaks, fogged glass, and insect intrusions are just a few of the many reasons why you might want to consider new replacement windows for your home.

2021 is here, so we checked in with Pella, whose Impervia fiberglass windows were used on the Model Remodel project, to find out what window trends they’re tracking. Here are a few highlights: • Surging interest: As most in the industry already know, stay-at-home orders during the pandemic have driven homeowners to refurbish their homes and tackle projects they’ve been putting off.

Low-Maintenance Building Materials Align with Homebuyer Lifestylesopens in new window
More buyers are looking for homes that offer a lock-and-leave lifestyle. They would rather engage in activities like spending time with family and friends or pursuing hobbies than be overwhelmed with maintaining their home. By all indications, baby boomers and millennials are two generations projected to lead the purchase of low-maintenance homes in the next decade. As many as 40 percent of boomers are expected to purchase homes aligned with a lifestyle of convenience and low-maintenance. Millennials, who last year surpassed boomers as the largest generation in America, also want an active lifestyle unencumbered by the responsibilities of maintaining a home.

Pella Corp. unveils a sliding alternative to the window crankopens in new window
Pella Corp. has unveiled a new product innovation that takes the cranking out of opening and closing windows. While the company anticipates demand for a new type of window operator will boost demand for its windows that offer it, the traditional window crank isn’t going away anytime soon. The Pella-based window and door manufacturer has developed the Easy-Slide Operator, streamlined hardware that allows homeowners to simply move an ergonomically designed slider a few inches up to open the window and down to close it. The new hardware, which is patent-pending, will be an additional option for customers to choose from when they order select models of fiberglass windows.

As the demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) skyrocketed in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Stony Brook Southampton Hospital set out to shore up their supplies, in particular isolation gowns. Darrin Wiggins, MD, Vice Chair of Stony Brook Southampton Hospital Emergency Department, and Ken Wright, Chairman of the Southampton Hospital Association, generated multiple protective gown prototypes - one of which was very close to the isolation gowns currently utilized by the Hospital's healthcare workers. That jumpstarted an innovative, collaborative campaign that resulted in 10,000 new isolation gowns, made in approximately two and half weeks. The project was championed by a group of more than 100 committed volunteers, as well as longtime business associates that included Michael Reilly of Reilly Architectural, a division of Pella Corporation; Tracy Kappenberg, of Riverhead Building Supply; and Leonard Skuggevik, Tuckahoe School Superintendent.
