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 [...]

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 [...]
