To update the look of this lake house's front exterior facade, designers rejuvenated the cedar shingle roof and had new copper gutters installed. Blue siding was put on the house, and the existing garage door was replaced with a mahogany one, and the Dutch door was restored to bring back the home's charm. To put the finishing touch on the home, new landscaping was added, making the home feel cozy and inviting.
The home's sitting room was designed as a comfortable reading spot for the homeowners. Within this space, they are able to catch views of the waterfront, while the space's eastern exposure allows for warm morning sunshine all year long.
With all the windows in the home's rear facade plenty of natural light gets in during the day, while also allowing the homeowners to have a beautiful view of the lake. At night, the windows allow the home's artificial light ouside, giving it a glowing, elegant appearance
