The vaulted ceiling in this space provides a dramatic touch to the already chic teen's lounge and bedroom.

Enjoy al fresco dining on this elevated, lakeside deck. After dining, relax on one of the swings. Many of the residential properties on this lake have a boat dock. The Houghtons bought two lots, making room for a boat dock AND a second "party deck" (this was their wish, in two words!). So HGID designed this as a floating lounge, literally - comfy upholstered seating areas with a huge TV, swimming dock (they're wake boarding fanatics) and wet bar complete with a kegerator (they're fanatical for beer). Everything is upholstered in Sunbrella, including the outdoor drapery, which all gets a heavy hose-down in advance of every visit. The couple and their guests can nap, lounge, party and relax there.
Almost any outdoor spot can be transformed into a functional living space or lounge with the proper use of dead space.
