The Bakers began their self-build project in 2017 with the intention of creating a modern home that framed the beautiful views of the picturesque Cornwall countryside. Incorporating glass into the home was essential to making the most of the scenery and letting in as much natural light as possible.
Discovering the Origin Sliding Door
Whilst the couple had an idea for how they wanted their newly renovated home to look once complete, they weren’t sure what products would be best suited to achieving their vision. Whilst working at a stand in a neighbouring exhibition hall, Mr Baker decided to visit Origin’s stand at the 2018 FIT Show.
It was at the show that Mr Baker first saw the Origin Sliding Door which was being launched as part of the Origin Home Range. When speaking to an Origin representative at the show it quickly became clear that Origin was the perfect choice. With product guarantees of up to 20 years, high-grade aluminium providing enhanced security and superior thermal efficiency resulting in U-values as low as 0.8 for windows and 1.3 for sliding doors, there was only one box left to tick, slim sightlines… The Bakers wasted no time in contacting their local Origin installer, Prime Windows to get the ball rolling.
Ultra-thin aluminium sliding doors
To maximise the beautiful views the couple knew they wanted their sliding doors to have thin frames. Origin’s aluminium inline sliding door has door frames of just 2cm wide which gives the panoramic view many homeowners require.
Origin Windows were chosen throughout the property, in matching anthracite grey, to complement the three sets of sliders. The windows on the ground floor combine fixed windows for thin frames and top hung windows to ensure the correct egress for fire regulations to add a further element of safety to the new build.

A premium service thanks to Prime
The installation was carried to out to the usual impeccable standard of Origin Premium Partner, Prime Windows Devon. Mr Baker commented ‘The level of service offered by Prime Windows was impressive from start to finish. Origin and Prime are both very customer focussed.’
Now that their home is complete, the couple couldn’t be happier. Origin’s products have brought their vision of a light property with incredible views to life. Read about the benefits of natural light in the home.
Recommending to friends and family
Impressed by the Origin products and the excellent service received when purchasing their new doors and windows, The Bakers have gone on to recommend Origin and Prime Windows Devon to friends and family, who, after seeing the products in The Baker’s home, have since chosen Prime to install Origin Doors and Windows into their homes too.
