Governmental ordinances and codes can vary greatly from one lake to the next. Our years of lake home building have made us very aware that complying with these ordinances greatly influences what size and shape of structure can be placed on a particular building site. We offer our knowledge of these factors to assist in the design and placement of your vacation home.
The geographical processes that have occurred, which have allowed these beautiful lakes to form, may create sub-surface conditions that make it challenging to place a foundation. We know what indications to look for and how to proceed when those conditions are found to be present.
When you select us to build your vacation home you can expect to receive the same quality of workmanship and materials that we use on homes we build in more conventional urban and suburban residential settings.
T. K. Ladd, a Ft. Wayne architect, designed this single story cottage with walk-out basement. The home makes efficient use of the building site by providing deck area over the recreation room in the basement. The large covered porch on the street side of the home offers an exterior area to relax on rainy days. The great room has exposed structural elements that create additional interest in the volume ceiling.
