Design/Build on Lake James Under Construction

The owners of this incredible lot on Eagle Island, dividing Lake James and Snow Lake, asked us to help them with the design of a home that would do the site justice. With lots of issues such as wetland setbacks and a misaligned road with the platted right-of-way, the lot certainly presented Lynn with design challenges for the home as well as wending our way through the process of getting governmental approvals. The result of the extra effort in design and permitting will be a gorgeous 2,446 sq. ft craftsman style two-story home built on a slab foundation. There will be 3 full baths serving 3 bedrooms. Most of the activity will center around the open great room and kitchen area on the main floor. There will also be a very large bonus room over the garage that can be used as a secondary activity center as well as for [...]

New Residence Under Construction In Allen County

When the existing home on this farmstead in southeast Allen County is razed, it will make way for a new home to be constructed. The owners are graciously allowing the local fire department to perform some drills as part of the demolition.

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 [...]
