Needing a space for guests, the owners of this property were interested in using an existing unattached garage as the core of which a guest house could be built around. While preserving the function of the unattached garage, Lynn designed the three bedroom guest house to seamlessly attach to it. To meet lake ordinances, the guest home was attached to the main cottage with a covered exterior walkway. Although this addition was stick built, the extensive use of ship-lap wall coverings and beam work successfully achieved the owners wish that the interior match the feel of the timber framed main cottage.
This ranch home with a split 3 bedroom design sits on a partial basement with separate access directly from the garage and from the main stairway off of the great room as well. Lynn designed an in-law suite over the garage to be somewhat removed from the other living areas to providing for a private get-away.
This one-of-a-kind home, designed by Lynn was featured in the Town and Country home show in Ft. Wayne. The owner's suite is located on the main floor along with the great room and formal dining room. A compartmentalized bath provides simultaneous use for occupants of the three bedrooms on the second floor. A low maintenance composite deck overlooks a beautiful pond in the rear of the home.
A multi-purpose room just off of the foyer welcomes visitors into this 3 bedroom two-story with the master bedroom on the main level. Lynn designed this home to allow for the side-loading 3-car garage to be used on this building site. With volume ceilings, the great room is open to the kitchen and nook area and gives the home a spacious feel that belies its actual size. This home was built on speculation in LaCabreah subdivision in Ft. Wayne.
Gorgeous views of the pond in Sorrento can be had from the master bedroom, great room, kitchen and nook. This split bedroom home on a walk-out basement offers a unique feature of having storage in the basement with direct access to the exterior. We received many compliments on the quality of the construction and for Lynn's design of this home, by the visitors touring the home in the Town and Country Home Show.
