New Home in Silver Leaf Addition

Construction has begun on what will be our 3rd new home we've constructed in Silver Leaf subdivision in northern Allen County. Like the majority of the projects we're asked to participate in, the owners were referred to us by a satisfied past customer. This home, designed by Lynn, will have 3,646 sq. ft. of living area on two levels. There will be 3 bedrooms, including the owner's suite, on the main floor with an addition bedroom on the 2nd floor. The secondary bedrooms on the main floor will be served by a Jack & Jill bath while the bedroom on the 2nd floor will have its own full bath. The focal poitn of the home will be the expansive open area that will encompass the great room, kitchen and dining room. A covered porch overlooking a pond in the rear, will be accessed from the dining room as well as [...]

Point Park Home Under Construction on Clear Lake

It should be no mystery why this bluff on a point overlooking the island was one of the very first properties on Clear Lake to have a home built on it many years ago. When one walks to the edge of the bluff, you are presented with possible one of the most gorgeous vistas on the lake. Sadly the existing home, that so nicely served its owners for many decades had seen its better days and with much deliberation it was decided that a new home would better meet the needs of those who call this property home. We are very grateful and honored to be chosen by the owners to design and build this home with them after having worked with them on another project just two years ago. The owners and Lynn have spent many hours working on a design that takes proper advantage of the unique offerings [...]

Total Renovation of Home on Snow Lake

We are always very humbled and appreciative when we recieve a call from a past customer with a request to join them in another project. That was the case with this extensive renovation and remodel project in Sprague Addition on Snow Lake. This sprawling home on a huge lake-front lot was built in phases and was quite dated when the owners purchased the property. The owners shared their desire with Lynn to come up with a redesign of the central area of the home to provide a more open feel and enlarge the rather small kitchen. The complexity of the original design of the home made the redesign very challenging but we feel ultimately delivered on the owner's wishes. We also added a new covered porch with outdoor kitchen overlooking the lake and completely refinished the exterior of the home with fiber-cement siding and manufactured stone. This was, most likely, [...]

Riverfront Two-Story in Ft. Wayne Under Construction

After working with our company on a condo renovation project a few years ago, the owner contacted Lynn about working together again on another project. The owners informed Lynn that they had purchased a large river-front lot on the near north side of Ft. Wayne. Upon visiting the site, any negative expectations that we may have had about the lot were quickly dispelled and the excitement with the project grew exponentially. The possibilty of renovating the existing home was discussed but it was eventually determined not to be the best option and demolition and building new was going to make the most sense. With that decision made, the owners shared with Lynn what they wanted and needed in their new custom home. The result of this one-0f-a-kind home designed by Lynn, is a beautiful two-story home on a slab on-grade foundation. When completed, the home will have five bedrooms, three [...]

Mid Century Modern Lake Home

Demolition of the existing cottage has commenced to make way for the new home to be constructed on a gorgeous lot at Sowless Bay on Lake James. The owners originally contacted Lynn about the prospect of renovating and expanding the existing cottage. Plans and pricing for the project were finalized but the owners revealed that they were curious how a demolition and new build would compare to the remodel/expansion. Interestingly, the new home Lynn designed, as instructed by the owners, was very similar to the layout that was proposed for the remodel and addition. After comparing the cost for each project it was decided that the difference between the two projects was insignificant enough to make the demo/new project the logical choice. The new home will boast 4,181 sq. ft. of living area on two floors with another 2,896 sq. ft. of finished area in the walk-out basement. There will [...]
