Using the advantage of being long time year-round lake home residents, the owners of this very well thought-out home will enjoy a nice mixture of comfort and convenience. One of the owner's primary goals, conveyed to Lynn in the design phase, was to have plenty of space to store boats and lake toys in the off season, while allowing simultaneous use for automobile parking as well. The challenge in this design was to make certain that the oversized garage didn't dominate the street-side appearance. This challenge was nicely met with the strategic use of windows and a dormer. Another advantage offered by the large garage was the relatively inexpensive space available above, to use for additional bedrooms and a media room. With this additional space, the home offers a roomy 3,571 sq. ft. of living area. This 5 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath beauty is situated on a gourgeous homesite at [...]
Having outgrown their home, this family decided that the best solution to their lack of living space was to have a new home built. As a farming family, the owners determined that the best location for the new home was right there on the family homestead that has been in the family for many years. The new home is situated in a manner that compliments this gourgeous farmstead. Along with the owners, Lynn designed this home to accomodate the specific needs that are typical for a large family. From the super-sized mud room and laundy room, to the large kitchen with walk-in pantry, a great deal of attention was given to functionality in the design of this 5 bedroom home. A dedicated school room and separate library allows the children space to be properly home-schooled. Provisions have been made for a sun room and bonus room in the attic to [...]
This 2,024 sq. ft. Craftsman style single story home offers 3-bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths as well as a sun room overlooking a pretty pond. The garage is designed in such a way that a portion may be used as a wood shop or more conventionally as a car park. With beefed up framing and a light-weight freight elevator in the attic over the garage, there will be no shortage of storage space in this home. The open space in the great room, kitchen and nook divides the master bedroom from the two bedrooms on the other end of the home for exceptional privacy.

With amenities such as the 11' high coffered ceiling in the great room to the paving brick installed on the patio and sidewalks, this home is very well appointed. Along with the owners, we are extremely pleased with this one-of-a-kind beauty.
The owner's dreams of country living are fulfilled inside and out with this beautiful Cape Cod home located in southeastern Allen County. Working closely with the owners, Lynn designed this home to function nicely and yet take advantage of the views of a wonderful private pond in the rear yard. The home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths with an exercise room and unfinished bonus room on the 2nd floor. With features like the farm sink in the kitchen and the barn door on the laundry room, the owner did a wonderful job of making the interior of the home warm and inviting. After investigating all the options for heating and cooling the residence, the owner chose to have a very high efficient air to air heat pump installed to work along with a conventional L.P. gas forced air system. With a design temperature of 10 degrees, the heat pump will [...]
