Design – Build on Clear Lake’s Gold Coast

  • Lake view of new home

Project Description

After generations of serving the family well the existing cottage, it was decided, had seen its finest days and it was no longer feasible to be refurbished adequately. The family determined that a totally new cottage would be the direction in which they would proceed and contacted Lynn through references, to help in the design and construction of the new lake cottage.

As is the case with virtually all vacation homes, the owners wanted an emphasis placed on sleeping capacity as well as adequate bathroom facilities. This 2,241 sq. ft. 6 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath one and 0ne-half story home on a walk-out basement ( 1,180 sq. ft. finished ) meets those requirement very nicely.

Taking advantage of the unusally large lot, a super-sized composite deck will be built to allow for spectacular views along what is referred to as Clear Lake’s “Gold Coast”. The deck will be constructed in a manner that provides cover from the weather for the patio below. This impermeability will also provide an option for the owners to complete a screened-in porch under a portion of the deck if they choose to do so in the future.

The exterior is constructed with very low maintenance materials to decrease the time spent on home upkeep and to maximize the time spent enjoying lake living at its finest.
