Another Clear Lake Beauty Underway

With much guidance from the owners, Lynn designed this 3,538 sq. ft. two-story lake home now being built on beautiful Clear Lake in northern Indiana. With 4 bedrooms, two full baths and two half baths, the home will accommodate the owners and their extended family comfortably. The open kitchen-dining-great room area is set up to gather together after a great day on the lake.  A loft, separate entertainment room and office will provide areas for some seclusion when that is desired. Of course, the lake will be the focal point of this home and the design will aptly provide for that. There will be a super-sized covered porch spanning the full width of the home and overlooking this special lake. There will be a sun deck situated off of the porch which will be constructed of low-maintenance composite materials. The exterior of this mountain style vacation home will be clad [...]

Executive Home in Tullymore Subdivision Under Construction

Ironically, the homesite for this beautiful Tuscan style home has added significance for Lynn other than the gorgeous setting it certainly is. Located in Tullymore subdivision, which is the site of  the old Cedar Creek golf course, this home will be positioned over the 11th hole green and 12th tee. Having played the course for decades (with minimal success by the way), Lynn has fond memories of this special place. In particular, he witnessed a hole-in-one by a dear friend on the 12th hole. It seems so apropos for such a stunning home to be built on this special plot of ground. With 4,930 sq. ft. of living area, this one and one-half story home will contain 3 large bedrooms, each with access to private full baths. An office will be conveniently located just off of the foyer and a super sized laundry room is nicely situated off of the [...]

New Home and Outbuilding in Allen County

This project will be our second in the Silver Leaf addition between Auburn and Ft. Wayne off of Tonkel Rd. The project is very similar to the first one completed in Silver Leaf last year in that the scope of work includes an outbuilding. Not only is this our second project in Silver Leaf but it is our second project with the owners as well. With the desire to move a bit closer to town but keep the rural feel of their existing home, they decided that Silver Leaf fit their needs nicely. As a car collector, the ability to have an outbuilding on the property sealed their decision. This ranch style home will have 2,618 sq. ft. on the main floor with another 1,348 finished sq. ft. in the basement. There will be 4 bedrooms with 3 located on the main floor and one in the basement. There will [...]

Lake Residence on Sawmill Lake

With an eye towards retirement, the owners of a beautiful homesite overlooking Sawmill Lake in Kosciusko County contacted Lynn about designing a home for them. The sloping lot with abundant shoreline provided a nice palette on which Lynn could use to design a home that meets the needs and wishes of the owners. With many interests, the owners were very clear in what they wanted in a lake home and many of those desires were met in this design. A heated separate garage connected to the home by a covered porch serves the dual purpose of a shop and offseason boat storage. A craft room in the lower level was also high on the list of wishes as well as a trophy room that was incorporated into the floor plan. A large exterior composite deck and secluded hot tub patio provides outdoor entertainment areas and a concrete ramp to the [...]
