From Kids to Quiet

On the site of an old family summer cottage, nestled on a lake in upstate New York, rests this newly constructed year round residence. The house is designed for two, yet provides plenty of space for adult children and grandchildren to come and visit. The serenity of the lake is captured with an open floor plan, anchored by fireplaces to cozy up to. The public side of the house presents a subdued presence with a courtyard enclosed by three wings of the house.

Where is this house located on your website portfolio? - I like the single story, mostly simple, roof line.

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately we aren't exactly sure which tree species was used here.

minus the 2 arched dormers, then stretch the triangle wider, and push it back to where the dormers are (so it just comes out of the roof), then extend tin roof beyond that point.
