Great Lakes by Design

Joseph Philip Craig Custom Homes and Brian Neeper Architecture are featured in the In Flight Issue of Great Lakes By Design

Joseph Philip Craig Custom Homes and Brian Neeper Architecture are featured in the In Flight Issue of Great Lakes By Design. Read it here: https://greatlakesbydesign.com

We are delighted to announce that two of our custom homes have been featured in Great Lakes By Design, a design publication highlighting the architecture, the arts, the destinations, the fashion, the products, and the people behind them throughout the region. The magazine showcases work from designers in Michigan, Chicago, Indianapolis, and other major markets surrounding the Great Lakes.

The residential reflection, written by R.J. Weick, highlights our lakeside property as well as our mountain modern home. We truly enjoyed the interview process and love how the piece has turned out.

We invite you to pick up a copy and check out the beautiful 16-page article that features photography by James Haefner. Both properties were designed by Brian Neeper Architecture and built by Joseph Philip Craig Custom Homes.

Enjoy this excerpt from the opening paragraph:

“In many ways, a custom residential project is an extension of those who will call it home. From dramatic coastal bluffs, panoramic urban sightlines, and sheltered wooded properties, to the low-profiled presence of midcentury lines, shingle-style picturesque massing of Nantucket inspiration, and deep overhanging eaves of the Craftsman-style bungalow, different landscapes and architectural vernacular speak or resonate with the individual in a distinct and compelling way”

We are truly grateful for this special recognition and want to thank everyone who was a part of bringing this to fruition.

Lakeside Legacy featured in Michigan BLUE Magazine

Passion. Integrity. Timeless design.
This is what we stand for at Joseph Philip Craig Custom Homes. Our business is built on a strong family foundation that’s 40+ years strong.

We are very pleased to announce that our Lake Living home is featured in the most recent issue of Michigan BLUE Magazine. We collaborated in the building of the property, the landscaping, and the design which is typical to our entirely custom design build process. Every home we create is 100% unique.

Northern Michigan vacations provided the inspiration for the 12,700-square-foot residence’s architectural choice, a relaxed Shingle style that unifies the design inside and out.

Designed by Brian Neeper Architecture and photographed by James Haefner Photography, this property celebrates Michigan made craftsmanship in a beautiful setting.

The professional landscaping was done by David Cracchiolo of Northern Impressions and the interior design was completed by Tina Cracchiolo of Interiors by Craig & Company. It was truly a family effort to bring this home to fruition!

We would also like to acknowledge that there were many valuable contributions
