The inspiration for this home was the homeowners’ desire to create a retreat from their busy lives, an oasis to share with a large, close-knit family.

We worked closely with them to create interesting spaces in the home for their various interests and needs (a custom sewing room, an office with a wide view of the lake). The space planning renderings were designed to incorporate found pieces into the overall finished plan, creating the feeling of a lake home with history and charm, despite its new construction.

With almost 200’ of frontage, on a particularly windy section of lake, and despite a measurable snowfall during the winter of this build, these homeowners celebrated their first Fourth of July on Lake Winnipesaukee, thrilled with their new retreat.
