A collaboration between JLF Architects and Big-D Construction resulted in the creation of this sanctuary built within nature and extending onto the lake. The residence is made up of four structures connected by footbridges and is built using steel, reclaimed siding, stacked limestone and timber. The structures are topped with pitched roofs of Corten steel. Modest in size, there’s 3,400 square feet of interior space providing a rustic and charming experience with an abundance of wood and stone. Big-D Construction noted that the project took 36 months to complete and that local and state regulations didn’t allow for a coffer dam to be built, masonry columns were built in panels on the shore and that portions of the project were built on a neighbouring lake. The house enjoys private access to the lake and also includes outdoor entertaining areas, a fire pit and swimming pool. Scroll down to take a tour inside this gorgeous lake house!
