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.

Snow Blanket : Northern Michigan Lakefront

As we work throughout the year, we appreciate the balance between crisp autumn days, a fresh blanket of insulating snow, a breezy spring day carrying the promise of new life, and hot, humid summer days. Every day provides us with new challenges and blessings.

What a difference a week can make. Michigan always offers variation and surprises. We have begun the process of preparing this site for construction. We have excavated, poured the walls, and prepared to set a solid foundation as we construct this home. A thick blanket of snow, about ten inches, has covered the site and is holding in the heat. That’s lake effect snow! It is very quiet here today, truly peaceful. This is what makes life interesting. Why not take a moment and appreciate it?
