A touch of the Old South is the feeling one gets while spending time on the expansive lake side porch of this home designed by Len Mysliwiec. An outdoor fireplace offers the opportunity to use the porch on cool summer evenings or autumn days.

The great room has exposed structural elements that create additional interest in the volume ceiling.

An old cottage was demolished to make room for this beautiful lake home but care was taken to preserve an existing boat house and wood stairway to the lake. Lynn designed this home, using a floor plan from a previously built cottage and a photo of an exterior the owner provided, as a basis for this unique design. 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.
