one set of consertina doors would have worked better. the flow outside is impaired by thejutting of the doors when open. otherwise i can find no fault. what is with the glass panel in the floor?

Seems like a nice extension, just the glass (?) in the floor looks totally impractical. It eates away usuable floor space and since it’s lowered you will trip on the edges.

Love, love, love, save for the glass, as everyone mentioned. Maybe it gives great light? Ay idea who makes the dining chairs?

Thanks for the comments!
Concertina doors would have been nice as well, but didn’t suit the budget. The glass is walkable and gives a little (but nice) light in the basement. The top of the glass is exactly in line with the floor.
