Lakeside Home

After owning this property for many years, these clients needed more space to fit their growing family. The site location of the new home was chosen to optimize natural light and views of the lake, while allowing the original cabin to remain as an extra guest space. The home’s design allows one-floor living for the owners, with guest and lounge spaces upstairs for their visiting children and grandchildren. The clients’ love of natural wood and earthy tones shines throughout the spaces.
