Cottage on the Hill

Built into a steep hill with close proximity to the water’s edge, the renovation to this lakeside cottage began life as a small addition & ended as a multi-room interior & exterior transformation. Warm rustic tones echo throughout the home, including a Screen Porch addition featuring a stone fireplace, phantom screens, and a timber ceiling with the owner’s vintage waterskis used for bracing. An additional level with a children’s bedroom suite was added, offering stunning lake views from high atop the trees.
