This expansion and remodeling project was recently completed on beautiful Clear Lake. Being a registered architect, the owner designed the home to be expanded with a new great room, rec. room, 3-seasons porch and lake toy storage. A new enlarged custom kitchen as well as new and expanded wood exterior decks were also part of the project. The existing roof was replaced and the home now is protected with new vinyl shake siding complimented with natural thin-veneer stone. A new wood-burning fireplace in the great room and one in the new 3-seasons porch were added as well. The home's main entry is relocated to a new covered porch on the street side and a new unattached two-car garage has been constructed on the property as well. With the extensive landscaping, this transformation has been nothing short of spectacular. We continue to receive many compliments on this refreshed and expanded home.

Centered on the south shore of beautiful Clear Lake, this elevated home site provides a spectacular vista of the lake to the north. As is typical of many lake-side building sites, this sloping lot presented unique design challenges and opportunities for the landscaping, hardscaping and home layout. Lynn worked closely with the owners to design a home that not only meets their requirements but complies with the strict ordinances of the Town of Clear Lake as well. This two-story home consists of 3,100 sq. ft. of living area above grade and is built on an unfinished walk-out basement and attached one-car garage. Like so many vacation homes there is an abundance of sleeping areas (5 bedrooms) and 4 1/2 baths.

Designed specifically for this lovely home site in southwest Ft. Wayne, Lynn and the homeowners have created a home that will take full advantage of the gorgeous pond that abuts this property. The topography of the site allows for a daylight basement that includes windows with sufficient length to give the feel of living space above grade. One of the four bedrooms in this home is located in the basement along with a recreation area and tons of unfinished storage and future flexible-use spaces. Access to the basement is enhanced by a secondary stairway connecting the basement directly to the 3-car garage.

The fabulous exterior is embellished with fiber-cement siding and a brick/stone combination. A maintenance free exterior composite deck overlooks the pond and [...]
