New Home Construction in Kosciusko County

This new home has been uniquely designed by Lynn to meet the very specific wishes and needs of this family. The home, when completed, will sit on 4 1/2 rolling acres in northern Kosciusko County. With 2,068 sq. ft. of living area on the main level and 352 sq. ft. of finished area in the full daylight basement, the home will offer three bedrooms and three full baths. One of the bedrooms will double as an office. In addition to the main stairway located off of the foyer, there will be another stairway from the oversized 3-car garage directly into the basement. This will provide wonderful access to the mechanical and storage areas of the basement without having to access those through the home. There will also be a floored attic measuring 576 sq. ft. that will have the potential to be converted into living space if that is desired [...]

Lake James Vacation Home Under Construction

After dreaming of replacing the tired old cottage on this family property on Lake James, the owners have decided that the time has now come to move forward. The goals for the project are to provide more sleeping and bathing capacity as well as being able to enjoy the benefits of new amenities currently available in new homes. The original concept for the home was created by local architect Phillip Breckler. With some subsequent adjustments by Lynn to meet some additional wishes by the owners as well as lot considerations, the result will be a beautiful 4,532 sq. ft. two and one-half story lake home. The design calls for five bedrooms plus a bunk room over the garage. The home will have 3 1/2 baths and two large entertainment areas overlooking the lake. Due to the slope of the lot, it was decided that it made sense to use the [...]

Clear Lake Makeover and Expansion Project

Having completed a partial renovation of this cottage on beautiful Clear Lake several years ago, the owners contacted us about partnering with them again on a more extensive remodel and expansion.  Because of significant nostalgia for the cottage, a total demolition and rebuild was discarded as an option. Lynn was then tasked with coming up with a design that achieved the goals of the owners, yet stuck to a very strict budget. The result is a vacation home that provides 5 bedrooms, which is one more than the cottage originally contained. There also is an additional bath that now makes a total of four. The existing kitchen was disassembled and relocated into the expanded area with a new very large island added that is the center of the combined kitchen, dining and great room area. A fireplace chase that was clumsily located in the center of this space was removed [...]

New Residence Under Construction in New Haven

This new home under construction in New Haven is for a 2nd generation member of a family we've partnered with in quite a number of projects in the past. This is a reminder of how fortunate we've been to have served this area for nearly 40 years and the opportunity to build for first and second generations. This home, when complete, will provide 1,845 square feet of living area on the main floor as well as a bonus room over the 3 car garage. The three bedrooms are served by two full baths. A large great room is open to the kitchen and dining area. A separate laundry room is conveniently located just off the garage. The home will be conditioned with a high efficiency gas furnace and high seer air conditioner. The domestic hot water will be provided by a tankless heater which has become a very popular choice [...]

Vacation Home on Syracuse Lake Under Construction

This homesite on beautiful Syracuse Lake presented not only design challenges but will also be somewhat difficult to construct. With very narrow access at the road the lot widens as it approaches the lake and provides a very generous lake yard. Being mindful of the minimum side yard, lake and street setback requirements Lynn designed a home that fully meets the needs and wishes of the owners. When complete, the home will have 2,675 sq. ft. of living area above grade and 1,105 sq. ft. of living area on the walk-out basement. Of the five bedrooms, two will qualify as owner suites. There will be a large office above the two-car garage and a large recreation area in the basement as well as an open kitchen and great room on the main level. A large exterior deck will be accessed from the great room as well as an exterior stairway. [...]
