The homeowners of this existing lakeside residence were looking for revitalizing this outdated, small cabin for them to enjoy their retirement with their children and grandchildren. The expanded plan not only addresses the family's desire for a welcoming space to gather and create lasting memories but also navigates various environmental and scheduling challenges with innovative solutions.


The addition seamlessly integrates with the existing structure of the residence, creating a harmonious flow between old and new. Large windows and ample outdoor seating areas offer breathtaking views of the lake, allowing the family to appreciate the natural beauty surrounding their home.


One of the key challenges in the project was addressing environmental concerns, such as increasing the size of the home while utilizing the existing structure. Sustainable building materials, energy-efficient fixtures, and green design practices were incorporated into the addition to minimize its carbon footprint and ensure minimal impact on the surrounding environment.


The complex addition to the lakeside residence not only enhances the living space for the retired couple and their family but also serves as a testament to thoughtful design and meticulous planning to exceed their expectations. It stands as a beautiful and functional space where multiple generations can come together to celebrate, relax, and create cherished memories by the serene waters of the lake.
