Cottage in Island View Clear Lake

  • Vacation home design and build on northern Indiana lake

Project Description

Like many lake home building sites, this lot presented some challenges, not the least was dealing with the severe slope from the street down towards the lake. Accomodating this slope was accomplished by building the basement with 12′ high ceilings.

Efficient using the space under the deck for a screened porch was acheived with impearmeable aluminum decking above. Among the many features in this fabulous cottage were the tin ceiling and wall-sized tropical mural in the wet bar located on the lower level. This mural was painted by Auburn artist Pat Delagrange.

Using many great ideas offered by the owner, this home was designed by Lynn specifically for this site.
