Home with Katie: Design Tips for Upper-level Oriels

Video Length: 6:28
Produced by: Katie Hutchison

Join me on a tour of some upper-level oriels like the ones I describe in my Drawing Board column, "Taking Oriels to a New Level" in the September issue of Fine Homebuilding (#221). Think of an oriel as a window bay that doesn't have a foundation. In this video, we'll look at oriels that announce entryways, create stair landings and double as dormers, along with a bonus type. We'll also meet other architects designing upper-level oriels, and hear from a builder about installing one, too.
