Lakes Edge House

The result is a double level house, with a large outdoor living room, with built in seating, gas fireplace and outdoor kitchen, created by the overhanging level above.


We started with a list of features that we wished for in a house and ended up with a house that fulfilled every wish. We particularly love the fact that the quality of the design and build are immeasurably satisfying.

Opening cedar shutters allows users to manipulate the facade to create openness or privacy depending on requirements. The home features a batten cedar ceiling which is continuous from inside to out. The frameless glass on the northern end of the living room further helps to blur the lines between the interior and exterior.
