Building a custom lake house is a great way to create your perfect primary or vacation home! We’ve done several custom lake houses; here are some ideas from our past projects to help you daydream about your own lake house!
Exterior and Landscaping
Chances are, if you’re building on a lakefront lot, your surroundings are gorgeous. Choosing a natural, well-designed exterior and smooth landscaping can compliment the beautiful views and make your lakefront experience even better!
Frame the View
A custom home builder can use windows to frame your perfect lake view from as many rooms as possible. This dining room uses windows to frame a perfect panoramic view of the lake below.
Make Use of Surroundings
Many lakefront properties have steep inclines down to the water, which demand a long staircase to reach the lake. Instead of viewing this as a negative, why not use it to your advantage? This homeowner decided to build a rolling staircase down to the lake, including a beautiful landing halfway down where they can sit and enjoy the view!
Wall of Windows
Creating a two-story wall of windows is another popular way to make the best of your lake view! This home uses the design technique to create a beautiful view in the living room.
