Mountain Style Home in Northern Allen County

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 home site are rarely found locally and it demanded 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 was demolished to make way for this exquisitely designed and well appointed new single family residence. Now complete, this two-story home is comprised of 3,300 square feet of living space over a finished daylight basement. The three bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths are accompanied by two offices and a sun room. An over-sized attached two car garage provides additional storage to that provided by an outbuilding that shares the site. The open linear design of the great room, dining room [...]

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 [...]
