The owner told me to redesign this home as if it was my own. I added many of my favorite design features while planning the house for the two bachelors who live there. Being right on the edge of the lake, the size and shape of the existing house was grandfathered and fixed, but I got permission to reconstruct the one-story portion with a flat roof to meet the ridge height of the old pitched roof. The extra 15 inches of ceiling height allows you to see the top of trees across the lake and adds a sense of spaciousness. Lots of built-in flexibility makes this house feel and act a lot bigger than it is.
