Mountain Style Home Under Construction

We are extremely excited to have been selected to design and build this mountain style home on Cedarville Reservoir in northern Allen County. The spectacular views offered on this homesite are rarely found locally and it demands that a new home built there should take every possible advantage of those beautiful vistas. The owners requested Lynn's assistance in designing a home that would do just that. An existing home will be demolished to make way for this exquisitely designed and well appointed new single family residence. When complete this two-story home will be comprised of 3,300 square feet of living space over a finished daylight basement. The three bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths will be accompanied by two offices and a sun room. An oversized attached two car garage will provide additional storage to that provided by an exsisting outbuilding. The open linear design of the great room, dining room [...]

Sport Court and Utility Building Under Construction

This building is being constructed as part of larger project that includes a spectacular home also under construction in northern Allen county. The owners of this property presented Lynn with a basic size and list of features they wanted included in the design. The result of the design process is a building that will provide heated space for a four-vehicle garage with 12' ceilings. A full bath is situated directly off of this space. A fully conditioned sport court is connected to the garage with a laminated glass overhead door. The recreation space will allow for a half court basketball floor that may be used for indoor volleyball or even pickle ball. This area will be finished with hi-impact sheetrock on the interior walls. The 2nd floor lounge area will overlook the sport court and will be partioned with another full glass overhead door. The lounge will include a full [...]

Upscale Home Construction Underway in Ft. Wayne

This magnificent home now being constructed was designed by the renowned architectural firm of Visbeen Architects, Inc. based in Grand Rapids Michigan. The home will be situated on a large homesite in a very desirable area of northern Allen County, which provides for the seclusion of country living with the important benefits of access to natural gas service as well as public sewer. The combination of privacy with public utlities that this site offers is, as you may know, extremely difficult to find anywhere in Allen County, Indiana. Since the site is so special, the owner's felt as though the home should be equally as remarkable. It is obvious by the renderings, the architects have done a wonderful job of designing this one-of-a-kind residence. The use of copper on the covered porch and the boxed-out window roofs is just one of the seemingly endless list of features that will make [...]

Period Home Construction in Ohio

The owners of this home, built in a secluded wooded setting in northwest Ohio, were very clear in their instructions as to its design and layout. The over-riding requirement was to stay as true to the early New England period home style as possible while taking advantage of the benefits that new technology offers. With considerable guidance from the owners, we feel that this goal was successfully achieved. Lynn and the owners designed this home with authentic characteristics such as lower ceiling heights and a steeped pitched roof common for the period. An over-sized all masonry fireplace is the central focal point of the interior and exterior as well. The interior decorating follows the theme with s4s casings and base as well as an all wood stair case with simple balustrade and wide wood plank flooring. Small touches like the hand crafted door hardware in the style used in the period contribute to [...]
