Cape Cod Style Home on Big Long Lake

  • New cottage lake view

Project Description

With instructions from the owners to preserve the abundant natural beauty of the property and to provide maximum area for outdoor living in the design, Lynn was turned loose to design what we feel will be among one of the most gorgeous lake homes in northern Indiana. With private decks for the three bedrooms on the 2nd floor and the wrap-around veranda on the main floor, there is certainly  no shortage of exterior space to enjoy the jewel that is Big Long Lake.

An over sized see-thru fireplace divides the multi-sided sun room from the great room and views of the lake are in abundance from these areas as well as most rooms in the home. A full “lake bath” and the super-sized laundry room are smartly located just a step inside the lake-side door. The large bonus room over the garage provides space that is available to use in any number of ways. The over sized garage, which allows for boat and lake toy storage, is just another example of how this home is designed for lake living at its finest.

As a show of respect for the history and beauty of this special site, the owners requested that we use the lumber harvested from a large red oak on the site in the construction of the new home. This timber was milled and used as flooring, mantels and a nook table.
