Telecommuting is extremely common these days and enabling the owner to work from home was a very important factor in the layout of this home. The home office is tucked away from the rest of the home, being located over the garage and served by its own stairway. While designing this feature, Lynn felt it would be necessary for the office to have a bath for convenience, as well. The home boasts an expansive custom kitchen and over-sized laundry room/craft area. The mater suite is on the main floor and, being on a wooded lot, the screened porch was a necessity.
Len Mysliwiec from Lifespace Architects designed this lake home on Clear Lake to fit the relatively narrow lot like a glove. Sharon Mullett from Accent Design and the owner collaborated on the interior design of the home. If you are fortunate enough to be invited into this lovely home, you'll be amazed at how spacious and comfortable it feels and how it belies the fact that it is situated on a rather narrow lot.
Situated on the northern tip of Snow Lake, the best views of the lake were to the south of this property. Lynn designed this home with that in mind and was able to maximize the views from the great room, dining area, master bedroom, screened porch and deck.
Located in southwestern Ft. Wayne, this 5 bedroom two-story sits on a finished walk-out basement. The master suite is located on the main level and the kitchen combines with a spacious hearth room. The exterior is substantially brick which provides for durable and maintenance-free protection from the elements. Situated on the edge of a wooded area, the screened-in deck provides for a pest free entertainment option in the summer months.
After a devastating fire destroyed this historic building, the owner decided to rebuild and relocate the retail portion of their business from across the street into the new structure. They wanted a building that suited their business which is feed and grain sales and desired to use what could be salvaged from the original structure. Lynn designed a building using the original foundation and integrated the new building with the undamaged portions of the original structure. An antique elevator was one piece of the original building that the owner was quite interested in saving and we were able to incorporate that into the design as somewhat of a focal point of the interior.
