New Strip Mall Under Construction

Having worked with us on another project recently, the owners of a piece of property on busy Highway 6 in Ligonier approached us about tearing down the current building in use and constructing a new strip mall. The owners obviously wanted the maximum amount of space to use and lease while allowing for adequate parking. With the help of Miller Land Surveyors, it was determined that a two building layout would be the optimum use for the property. With those parameters set, Lynn provided the design concepts for the buildings that will allow up to 5 separate spaces. The owners have decided to build out the project in phases, building the structure that will house their retail business and another leasable space first and constructing the other building at a date in the near future. The architectural firm of Service Design Associates completed the structural plans, as required for obtaining [...]

Teardown on Hamilton Lake now Underway

After exploring the possibilities of remodeling the existing cottage the owners and Lynn came to the logical conclusion that the best way forward was to remove the existing cottage and start new. The new home will be built on a pretty site on Hamilton Lake in Steuben County. The 2,484 sq. ft. of living area provides plenty of space for 4 bedrooms ( master on the main floor) as well as a large bonus room overlooking the lake on the 2nd floor. There are 3 full baths serviced by an on-demand water heater for those times when there is a house full of guests. An extra deep bay in the two car garage will allow for a boat to be stored in the winter. There will be plenty of room for entertaining in the large open area that includes the great room, kitchen and dining area, with beautiful views of [...]

Restaurant Constructed 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 structure is their 3rd location, and is located on St. Rd. 14 just west of Interstate 69. This building is 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 were designed by the architectural firm Kelty Tappy Design, Inc. Although the design is much the same as the north location, customers have more parking and additional seating available in the restaurant as well as on the dining patio in the rear. The addition of a walk-up window accessed from the patio allows customers to conveniently get a refill of their favorite Mad Anthony Brew.  

Transformative Reconstruction of Vacation Home on Clear Lake

We've were 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 as such, led the family to follow the same approach for much the same reasoning. The existing lakeside cottage was dismantled (mostly by hand) down to the existing lower level walls and foundation. The reconstructed lake home was  expanded vertically to a total of 2,284 sq. ft. of living area which provides more than 1,000 sq. ft. of additional space than what the original cottage offered. The rebuilt vacation home has 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths plus [...]
