A couple looking to retire at their lakehouse, with grandchildren always visiting, needed an addition to their lakehouse that would enable them to enjoy and entertain all these young beings. Better closet space along with a more hospitable master suite was also on the agenda.
First the master bedroom was extended to make a bigger master bath with adjacent closet space. The master bedroom area was opened to a lake view and eastern light upon awaking from sleep.
To extend the living space a porch was added over-looking the lake. The porch orients the living area to lake views and breezes both for dining and relaxing in the lovely environment. If any future flooding occurs the porch is 9′-0″ above the water level, no flooding can occur in the near future.
Dark trim and lighter color trim was also studied in Lumion renderings. Below are Lumion renderings with light trim color.
Below is a dark trim study.
