PROJECT TYPE: New Construction
Fond memories of time spent at a childhood lake cottage inspired this active family to create a comfortable, shingle-style lake home of their own. Situated high on a serene lot overlooking Lafayette Bay, the home maximizes daylight for bedrooms and includes a master suite and office on the main floor for optimal functionality.
Outdoor enjoyment is also accounted for in the design of the hot tub, pool and terrace with a fire pit, as well as a pool house accessory structure that includes a shower and bar. A screen porch with built-in grill extends the enjoyment of the lake into the Minnesota spring and fall. The side-loaded design of the garage masks it from both the street and the lake, helping the home blend seamlessly into the lakefront vista.
