This was a compact lake house we designed for a client looking to create a weekend getaway on a popular area lake. We had a lot of fun with the plan manipulating the front facade to create interesting effects and angling the lake facade to maximize the lake views and create a wraparound effect viewed from inside. The space facing the lake is a two-story open great room with a fireplace dividing the two level and great room. The master bedroom and an open loft overlook the great room. The cathedral ceiling is formed with a scissor truss reflected in the windows facing the lake.
