Apologies, but our policy has been to not release drawings to protect both the clients privacy and our hard work. However, we have just heard that the owner is planning on selling.

This is a combination of board and batten pine above a rail and cedar shakes below. Did you notice the upside down stone capital in the foreground serving as a patio side table? I just love that touch.

Hello,
Sorry, we are not at liberty to divulge the costs to protect our clients. Since every area is different this information may not be very helpful anyway.
Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Dreaming Of: A House in the Woods
A house in the woods and a lakefront, too? This may very well take that dream list of yours to the next level. I often wonder where homeowners like this go on vacation. Do they prefer to stay in the woods or do they venture off to enjoy a faster pace?
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 25 Dream Homes to Satisfy Your Soul
This photo is the one that inspired this article. This setting, by Lake Fairlee, Vermont, is so tranquil and the style of the home fits in perfectly in the wooded surroundings. I would spend my days lounging on the patio, waiting for deer to wander into the yard in the evening.
