Harkreader Residence

Project Description

It’s something Tulsa builder Gary Harkreader and his wife, Elaine, had dreamed of for years; a connecting bridge that would link parts of his dream home. In an effort to generate ideas for the design of the bridge, he “found” the IBP GlassWalk system during a search on the Internet where he saw photos of GlassWalk skywalks and bridges. Gary quickly drafted an installation drawing and construction specification document and sent them to the staff at IBP. From this information a framing template was produced and IBP fabricated the system. "It fit like a glove”, was the way Harkreader described the installation process of the 15-foot long span. He added that, “It’s wonderful and the best part is, standing in the middle of my bridge, I have a beautiful view of the lake. It makes you really feel like you’re in the middle of the natural world with the lake on the horizon and the stream bubbling below your feet.” Gary’s bridge has been a hit with friends and family and is a place that guests gravitate to again and again.
