This lake side family house was completely transformed inside and out into a comfortable retreat. Rooms were relocated so that the first floor living areas, and second floor master suite and office have views across the lake. Stone steps lead to the lake and a generous porch and stairs open the house to the beach and dock. The basement provides access to boat storage and includes a bathroom, laundry and changing area so that boaters and swimmers can clean up before going upstairs. Energy efficient mechanical systems and a high performance thermal envelope were included so that the house can be operated with a fraction of the energy required before the renovations.
