Dream Lake Home

The vision for this over 7,000 sq. ft. custom built lake home came from the homeowner's many years of traveling to coastal areas out east and in Michigan. One of the most unique features (and the owner's favorite room) of the home is the geometric, octagonal screened-in sun porch with French doors. A relaxed home, the owner said it's important for it to feel that way; "you're not wearing a dress and heels to the lake; you're in shorts".
