Alan Gelet builds high-end custom residences ranging from log mountain cabins to Craftsman bungalows to contemporary homes. He needs a custom wood window manufacturer that's equally flexible. So far, Quantum Windows & Doors hasn't let him down. “They can pretty much make anything you want,” says the Ketchum, Idaho-based Gelet. Quantum uses its 20 years of experience to help builders, architects, and homeowners select types of wood, glass, finishes, and trim, and their list of options is extensive. They'll also build mixed-species windows; Gelet recently commissioned a set using walnut for the interior trim and teak on the exterior. Quantum is located in Everett, Wash., 30 miles north of Seattle, and serves clients all over the U.S. and Canada.
