This project initially started out as a second story addition over the existing footprint and an addition off one side. Once the existing structure was exposed, it was decided to tear the entire house down to the top of the foundation, which was reused.
The client desired a new lake home with as much square footage as possible without creating a simple square box. The house contains many different roof pitches, arch top windows, and façade details. Inside there is a large central great room, a custom kitchen, and spacious dining area. The original fireplace in the house was saved and made higher with additional stone in the new vaulted great room.
The house contains dramatic lake views from almost every room. This has been constructed with a minimal maintenance façade constructed in all vinyl hand split shakes and cultured stone. The owner first constructed a separate three-car garage on the site that was a “test” of the selected finishes before proceeding with the main house.
