Located in a shopping center on Lima Rd., this store-front space has been transformed into a new seven-chair barber shop. We have previously partnered with the owner of the establishment in the construction of their lake home. We always consider it quite an honor to be chosen once again to be a part of another project by returning customers.
This magnificent home was designed by the renowned architectural firm of Visbeen Architects, Inc. based in Grand Rapids Michigan. The home is situated on a large home site in a very desirable area of northern Allen County, which provides for the seclusion of country living with the important benefits of access to natural gas service as well as public sewer. The combination of privacy with public utilities that this site offers are, as you may know, extremely difficult to find anywhere in Allen County, Indiana. Since the site is so special, the owner’s felt as though the home should be equally as remarkable. It is obvious the architects have done a wonderful job of designing this one-of-a-kind residence.

Having worked with our company on two previous projects, the owners of this vacant lot on Lake Gage contacted us when they decided they would like to build a vacation home on it. This sloping property provides the opportunity for fantastic views of this gorgeous lake located in northern Indiana. This is our company's very first project on Lake Gage and we are proud to have added this lake cottage to the many beautiful places on this lake. This 3 bedroom home consists of 1,191 sq. ft. of living area on the main two floors with another 946 sq. ft. of finished area in the walk-out basement. The attached two-car garage has unfinished area above for storage but could easily be converted to more living area in the future if desired. The deck off of the main floor is accompanied by a 3-seasons room as options for indoor/outdoor entertaining. A [...]
The unique beauty and seclusion of this home site made consideration of moving for the owners a non-starter. The home however, was in need of updating and the family was growing and needed more room. That is when they contacted Lynn to explore the possibilities of expanding and remodeling the existing small gambrel roofed home. Some of the needs that were shared with Lynn and achieved through this project were a larger great room with fireplace, first floor master suite with a custom walk-in shower stall, new kitchen and dining area. The owner also needed an expansive garage to allow room for his mechanical talents. Lynn designed a new mud room, laundry room and full bath to be conveniently located just off of the new garage. The existing one car garage was finished into a den located right off of the expanded foyer entry. An extensive covered wrap-around porch was another [...]
The owners of this home, built in a secluded wooded setting in northwest Ohio, were very clear in their instructions as to its design and layout. The over-riding requirement was to stay as true to the early New England period home style as possible while taking advantage of the benefits that new technology offers. With considerable guidance from the owners, we feel that this goal was successfully achieved. Lynn and the owners designed this home with authentic characteristics such as lower ceiling heights and a steeped pitched roof common for the period. An over-sized all masonry fireplace is the central focal point of the interior and exterior as well. The interior decorating follows the theme with s4s casings and base as well as an all wood stair case with simple balustrade and wide wood plank flooring. Small touches like the hand crafted door hardware in the style used in the period contribute to [...]
