Garage Remodel at Crooked Lake

As the old adage goes, timing is everything. The owners of this property at Crooked Lake were very fortunate to have contacted us about expanding and remodeling the garage when they did. Having just relaxed some of the restrictions in place on garages, changes recently instituted by Steuben County Planning Dept. made this project possible. The owners not only needed a larger space but a higher ceiling in part of it served by a taller overhead door. This area is to allow for an R.V. to be stored inside. Due to tight side-yards the owners also requested the garage to be designed in a way that would allow access to the large rear yard with larger vehicles. Lynn also designed a floored attic with permanent stairs to increase the storage capacity even further. Since it was advantageous to maintain the positioning of the existing garage, it was determined that it [...]

Design/Build on Lake James Under Construction

The owners of this incredible lot on Eagle Island, dividing Lake James and Snow Lake, asked us to help them with the design of a home that would do the site justice. With lots of issues such as wetland setbacks and a misaligned road with the platted right-of-way, the lot certainly presented Lynn with design challenges for the home as well as wending our way through the process of getting governmental approvals. The result of the extra effort in design and permitting will be a gorgeous 2,446 sq. ft craftsman style two-story home built on a slab foundation. There will be 3 full baths serving 3 bedrooms. Most of the activity will center around the open great room and kitchen area on the main floor. There will also be a very large bonus room over the garage that can be used as a secondary activity center as well as for [...]

New Residence Under Construction In Allen County

When the existing home on this farmstead in southeast Allen County is razed, it will make way for a new home to be constructed. The owners are graciously allowing the local fire department to perform some drills as part of the demolition. Construction of this 2,919 sq. ft. home will begin shortly after demolition and will consist of 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The home is a ranch style with a 2nd floor bonus room and boasts a beautiful sun room as well. The mud room is nicely positioned between the 3 car garage and the eat-in kitchen. An important feature of this home will be in-floor radiant heat. The added comfort that this type of heating system provides cannot be overstated. From the walk-in master shower and his & hers closets to the wet bar the home will be packed with wonderful amenities. The exterior of the home [...]

Mountain Style Home Under Construction

We are extremely excited to have been selected to design and build this mountain style home on Cedarville Reservoir in northern Allen County. The spectacular views offered on this homesite are rarely found locally and it demands that a new home built there should take every possible advantage of those beautiful vistas. The owners requested Lynn's assistance in designing a home that would do just that. An existing home will be demolished to make way for this exquisitely designed and well appointed new single family residence. When complete this two-story home will be comprised of 3,300 square feet of living space over a finished daylight basement. The three bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths will be accompanied by two offices and a sun room. An oversized attached two car garage will provide additional storage to that provided by an exsisting outbuilding. The open linear design of the great room, dining room [...]

Sport Court and Utility Building in Northern Allen County

This building was constructed as part of larger project that included a spectacular home in northern Allen county. The owners of this property presented Lynn with a basic size and list of features they wanted to include in the design. The result of the design process is a building that provides heated space for a four-vehicle garage with 12' ceilings. A full bath is situated directly off of this space. A fully conditioned sport court is connected to the garage with a laminated glass overhead door. The recreation space allows for a half court basketball floor that may be used for indoor volleyball or even pickle ball. This area is finished with hi-impact sheetrock on the interior walls. The 2nd floor lounge area overlooks the sport court and is be partitioned with another full glass overhead door. The lounge includes a full bar, media area and convenient half-bath. There is [...]
