Banducci eschews conventional garage doors in favor of Clopay's Avante Collection. The aluminum-framed glass panel doors “make the garage an architectural feature instead of something we'd normally try to hide,” he explains. Shown here on one of the firm's houses, Avante doors are made with 2 1/8-inch frames in custom sizes. Multiple frame color and window style options—including frosted glass, Banducci's preference—can be speced. Clopay Building Products, 800.225.6729;
