Our clients had purchased a 1950's walk out one story ranch home on Lake Michigan in Sawyer, Michigan. The home had been added to and renovated over the years and boasted only four bedrooms that did not meet the client's goals as a family gathering home in Harbor Country. The existing one story home was razed to the foundation while maintaining the walk out basement. A new two-story home with a Dutch gambrel roof was created over the existing walk out lower level and additions added to all sides. With Lake Michigan as the backdrop and focus from the interior, creating traditional window placement and view to the lake was of the utmost importance. A large kitchen and vaulted family room were key elements for entertaining as well as seven bedrooms for family and visiting guests.
