Custom Waterfront Home

I designed this house to take advantage of it's direct waterfront setting with the primary rooms facing the lake. A full basement that sits no more than 100' from the lake is still as dry as when it was built, way back in 1990. There are a total of seven - yes, seven - washrooms are in this place, as well as four bedrooms, two finished fireplaces (with a third roughed in for the basement) and a formal diningroom.

Framing under way.

Given the time of the year that it was built, as well as the proximity to the lake, one of the challenges we had was putting the plywood sheathing on the roof. Windy!

It's really looking like something now that it's all closed in.

The entire house is clad in real clay brick. Some of the interior features are a two person corner whirlpool tub, complete with a waterfall and underwater lighting. There are also gold plated faucets and a 400 AMP electrical service.

The back of the house features a second story balcony. The joists for the deck were incorporated right into the floor framing in a cantilever design - extending back into the house by roughly 14'. This way, the entire balcony appears to be free floating, with no posts needed to support it.

The finished view. That's what it's all about here - the view!
