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 to this project. So many amazing people and companies joined together to create this home – please see the final page of the article for details.

We are grateful that we are able to bring dreams to life and create spaces that will bring memories for years to come.

This lakeside shingle style home serves as a comfortable setting for large family gatherings. The architectural design employs two flanking four-car garage wings that act as retaining walls to create a level motor court entry into the main level. Traditional cottage style interiors are designed to provide a casual and comfortable feel, with the familiarity of past vacations to northern Michigan. The exterior design takes cues from traditional American shingle style architecture in an original composition of rustic stone and shingle siding. The architecture is symbolic of the strength of tradition, and anchors the retreat for this client’s legacy.

Springtime in Northern Michigan: Inspired to Build a Custom Home

Springtime in northern Michigan is the perfect time to build a custom luxury home on the lake. Our video shows the latest updates to this property as we move forward with the construction process.

A solid foundation is necessary and we are grateful to work with so many professionals from the area. After all, the stronger the base foundation, the higher you can build your peak. Definitely true of construction and definitely a metaphor for life.

If you want to build a custom home and are looking for a full-service company, Joseph Philip Craig Custom Homes is a solid choice.
