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 [...]

Lake Home on Crooked Lake

With the existing structure demolished, construction could proceed on this new lake residence on the 3rd basin of Crooked Lake near Angola, Indiana. The owners presented Lynn with some detailed sketches of the floor plan that they preferred and with some tweaking the design of the home was completed. Per the owner's wishes, the home is designed to use as much of the depth of the lot as possible without needing a variance from the setback ordinances. The extra width of the property allowed for a home designed to take advantage of the wonderful views of the lake from practically every room in the home. Undeveloped areas on the far shoreline can be enjoyed from the open kitchen, nook and great room areas. The owner's suite in this one-story home is on the main floor with views of the lake from there as well as two bedrooms on the lower-level [...]

New Lake Home Design & Build on Lake Gage

Having worked with our company on two previous projects, the owners of this vacant lot on Lake Gage contacted us when they decided they would like to build a vacation home on it. This sloping property provides the opportunity for fantastic views of this gorgeous lake located in northern Indiana. This is our company's very first project on Lake Gage and we are proud to have added this lake cottage to the many beautiful places on this lake. This 3 bedroom home consists of 1,191 sq. ft. of living area on the main two floors with another 946 sq. ft. of finished area in the walk-out basement. The attached two-car garage has unfinished area above for storage but could easily be converted to more living area in the future if desired. The deck off of the main floor is accompanied by a 3-seasons room as options for indoor/outdoor entertaining. A [...]

Amazing Transformation of Home in Northern Allen County

The unique beauty and seclusion of this home site made consideration of moving for the owners a non-starter. The home however, was in need of updating and the family was growing and needed more room. That is when they contacted Lynn to explore the possibilities of expanding and remodeling the existing small gambrel roofed home. Some of the needs that were shared with Lynn and achieved through this project were a larger great room with fireplace, first floor master suite with a custom walk-in shower stall, new kitchen and dining area. The owner also needed an expansive garage to allow room for his mechanical talents.  Lynn designed a new mud room, laundry room and full bath to be conveniently located just off of the new garage. The existing one car garage was finished into a den located right off of the expanded foyer entry. An extensive covered wrap-around porch was another [...]

Lake Cottage Construction Just Finished on Clear Lake

Construction of this new home on Clear Lake was recently finished. This project was extremely challenging due to the significant slope and elevation change on this site. The oddly shaped lot made it necessary to obtain several variances from the local ordinances which were duly approved by the town's BZA.  A small cabin was demolished at the base of the hill to make room for the new 4-bedroom lake cottage designed by the owners with assistance from Lynn. Due to the unique nature of the site, the home is designed with somewhat of a reverse layout to the typical lake home design. The upper floor holds the 3 secondary bedrooms as well as a hobby room. The middle level includes the master bedroom and a family room while the kitchen and great room are on the lake level. On a calm day, one is able to watch fish swim near the shoreline [...]
