The home’s brick exterior features a Therma-Tru Classic Craft® Oak entry door system with full frosted glass doorlite and sidelites. The company introduced this series of products in 1994.
Six sets of Therma-Tru Slim-Line® patio doors across the back of the house provide home owners with beautiful views from a wooded hillside.
Therma-Tru specializes in fiberglass and steel exterior door systems, and it says that its recent research found that enhanced entryways can add as much as $24,000 to the perceived value of a home.
The objective of Feng Shui is to achieve a balance of energy and harmony to produce peace, prosperity and happiness.
Following the tenets of the Oriental philosophy, the home’s designers used a Bagua map to determine the location of key living areas.
The home’s exterior brick represents the I Ching, the book of change. The entrance reflects the Mouth of Chi. To encourage the flow of wealth, a waterfall travels through each of the three floors. The center core of the home, which starts in the kitchen, represents the heart and soul of health. Yin and yang are present throughout, bringing balance to the home, while the exterior views to the city of Cincinnati from every floor enhance relationships.
