Restaurant Construction on Ft. Wayne’s Southwest Side

Lynn Delagrange Inc. considers it an honor to have been contracted to construct another facility for the owners of Shigs in Pit restaurants. This new structure will be their 3rd location, which will be built on St. Rd. 14 just west of Interstate 69. This building will be very similar in appearance to the one we constructed for them on Maplecrest Rd. which opened to the public in 2017. The north restaurant as well as the southwest location now under construction were designed by the architectural firm Kelty Tappy Design, Inc. Although the design is much the same as the north location, customers will enjoy more parking and seating in the restaurant as well as on the dining patio in the rear. Weather permitting we hope to have this new restaurant up and running by early summer.  

Transformative Reconstruction of Vacation Home on Clear Lake

We've been asked to return to the site of our very first project at Clear Lake which was completed 30 years ago. That project entailed a rebuild and vertical expansion of an existing cottage initially constructed in 1934. Reconstructing the home on the existing footprint was dictated by an ordinance  requiring the use of that approach to maintain two separate dwellings on the site. A similar ordinance is in effect currently and has led the family to follow the same approach for much the same reasoning. The existing lakeside cottage will be dismantled (mostly by hand) down to the existing lower level walls and foundation. When the home is reconstructed, it will be expanded vertically to a total of 2,284 sq. ft. of living area from the existing 1,430 sq. ft. The rebuilt vacation home will have 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths plus a powder room. In addition to [...]

Extensive Remodeling Project on Clear Lake’s Gold Coast

Referred to us by other satisfied customers, the owners of this property located on the north shore of Clear Lake contacted us about doing a total refresh of their cottage. With an eye towards the future where they will be able to enjoy lengthier stays at the lake, the owners directed Lynn with a clear vision of what they required of the new design. From new siding and roofing, to replacement of the dated windows, one will scarcely recognize this lake home when those projects are completed. The addition of a new exterior deck will not only provide room for exterior entertaining but will enhance the inside-to-lakeside traffic pattern greatly and add interest to the seawall appeal of the home as well. The interior work will consist of, among other things, adding a new full bath to be accessible from the lake, replacing the kitchen cabinets/counter tops and reconstructing the [...]

Apartment Addition in Northern Allen County

The new owners of a home built by Lynn Delagrange, Inc. several years ago, contacted us to discuss their need for additional space. Initially the idea centered around a free-standing structure with an office over garage space below. Much thought was given to locating the building on the site and it became evident that there were few good options and none seemed perfect. It was then that Lynn tossed out the idea of adding the space directly to the existing home. The owners were very much open to the idea and Lynn was able to come up with an initial design that incorporated a four-car garage with a home office and powder room above. In subsequent versions of the plans an indoor kitchenette and fireplace were added as well as including a custom shower stall in the bath. Other amenities that found their way into the design were the addition [...]
