Ogden Dunes, Indiana Renovation

The home is situated on a narrow lot on Lake Michigan. The site and landscape were renovated in the late 1980's as part of a major home renovation. Overgrown shrubs were removed throughout the site. A circular paver driveway was added to provide better use of the front door. Extensive grading took place to make the home appear to site more prominently on the site.
