The steep lakeshore site is
sold rock. This custom designed house steps down the
hill and does not cut significantly into the slope.
No high retaining walls were required.
The home is set at an angle
from the road to maximize the views of the lake. The
country kitchen and the dining room open onto a south
facing deck and screened porch.
materials were used to eliminate any toxic run-off
from the house into the lake.
The house was constructed
for less than its budget because of the design's respect
for the site.
