Lake cottage East shore of Clear Lake

  • Partial demolition and rebuild in northeast Indiana

Project Description

Due to extensive water damage to their existing cottage the owners of this property decided that it was not sensible to repair the home and building a new cottage was a better approach. Unfortunately, the town’s new ordinances precluded positioning the home close to the location of the existing structure. They were allowed however, to keep the original foundation in place and rebuild on the established location.

Using the parameters of the existing foundation, Lynn was able to design a home with an exterior that does not resemble the old home in anyway and with a totally new floor plan that better fit the owner’s requirements for lake home living that the existing plan never offered.  This home was featured in the November/December 2011 issue of Northern Indiana Lakes Magazine.
