The original Arts and Crafts style B house was amazing. Unfortunately a fire destroyed the home [not just once, but twice]. Despite the fact that the original house was gone, the homeowners continued to use the lake front property for recreation [minus the house].
After more than a decade of sitting empty, our clients decided to build a new B4 house that will rise from the ashes. They wanted a twist though: an entirely new design in a very modern style. We also were tasked with reusing the very expensive original helical pile foundations (which were not damaged in the fire). The new design floats above the water.
Going from a very traditional to an extreme modern design shows the evolution of not only the site, but also the evolution of the design aesthetic of this amazingly adventurous couple.
