Sport Court and More Design/Build in Ft. Wayne

These returning customers requested that we take a look at the possibility of adding an indoor sport court to their existing home. They also wanted an outdoor covered entertainment space with a grill center overlooking an in-ground pool. They were sensitive to protecting the neighbor's view of the lovely pond at the rear of the lot as well. Lynn used this guidance to devise a way to make the addition appear as though the size of the addition didn't overpower the rest of the beautiful home. This was achieved by partially building into the sloping grade to minimize the height of the newly attached area. There is a new kitchenette situated just off of the sport court as well as a full bath that also offers quick access for the pool users which wasn't available prior to the addition. The new interior area is heated by a hi-efficiency gas furnace [...]

Lake Home on Big Turkey Lake

Watching as a new home we recently constructed on Big Turkey Lake progress, the owners of a lot practically next door caught the bug to build as well. They contacted Lynn with ideas of what they wanted in their new home but weren't certain if the lot would accomodate everything they had envisioned. Subsequent to establishing the building parameters with the county planning department, Lynn set out on coming up with a design that would achieve the vision offered by the owners while complying with the established setbacks. The result is a home with 2,802 sq. ft of living area on two levels. The main level consists of a large open area for the kitchen, dining and  great room as well as the master bedroom and bath. A popular design feature of access from the owner's walk-in closet directly into the laundry room was included in the plans. A spacious [...]

Eagle Island Vacation Cottage

The site for this new lake home under construction is on Eagle Island in Steuben County. The island is nestled between Lake James and Snow Lake and is a spectacular setting for the new lake cottage. The lot was undeveloped, which is a rarity for most lakes in northern Indiana. Wetlands near the home presented substantial design challenges for Lynn and ultimately a variance was required to allow the home to be designed to meet the owners criteria. The result is a vacation home that offers 3,048 sq. ft. of living area on two floors. There are views of the lake from the ground floor owner's bedroom, kitchen, dining and great room as well as two of three bedrooms on the second floor. Besides the three bedrooms and two baths, the second floor has an oversized bonus room that provides space for varied uses as well. There is a unique [...]

New Home Construction on Round Lake

This 2,890 sq. ft. home was designed by Lynn to fit on the homesite and take advantage of the unique position of this lot. Situated between Clear Lake and Round Lake, the site offers wonderful views in seemingly every direction. The screened porch is placed in the design to take advantage of views of both lakes and will certainly be a much used outdoor room when completed. The home will have 3 bedrooms plus a bunk room and 3 1/2 baths. The 3 full baths will be directly accessed from the bedrooms and bunk room. There is a separate office on the second floor that can double as a 5th bedroom when necessary. The main floor will have an open design with the kitchen, dining area and great room seamlessly connected. There will be an attached oversized two-car garage with a walk-in attic above for additional storage. The ground conditions [...]

New Home in Silver Leaf Addition

Construction is finished on our third home built in Silver Leaf subdivision in northern Allen County.
