Guest Cottage Transformation on Clear Lake

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.

The Winwood in Sorrento

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.

The exterior deck was constructed to protect the space below, so it could be used for outdoor living on rainy days. Provisions were made to allow for installation of roll up screens, which will offer the option of turning the space into a screened in area when desired. Year 'round living was the long range plan for the owner's of this lake home on Big Long Lake.
