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.
The owners of this 100 year old cottage requested that architect Jim Kratzat design the addition of a new three-seasons porch, new bath room and expansion of the existing dining room. They wished to update the interior and the exterior but only to the point that the original cottage “feel” was maintained. Working as a team, the architect, the decorator Melisa Flickinger, the owner and our company accomplished the owner’s objectives for this project.
