Shortly after acquiring a 90-year old lakeside log cottage, the owner watched as her childhood dream, struck by lightning, burned to the ground. We were commissioned not to replicate but to replace the cottage but with a year-round home providing an equivalent amount of peace, quiet, and future memories.

To comply with land use regulations, we minimized volume and maximized  usable space by employing very steep gables which contrast with shallow-pitched perimeter roofs covering open and screened porches.

This little house carries a big emotional burden; it is straightforward but very particular, and already memorable.
