Ever since I was a child I wanted to design homes. Like so many of us with a lifelong passion, what I do is not my job...it's my life.
Home designs ranging from American Traditional to Craftsman Bungalow to French Chateau to Tuscan Villa and even Easy Living are all in demand. Finding inspiration for a new home is the easy part. America is a melting pot for designs of different styles and influences from around the world.
Artistic freedom is embraced by those looking to create something extraordinary. But...extraordinary doesn't mean it has to be a massive structure with an exorbitant budget.
Take this home for example. A couple came to me expressing their desire for a small lake cottage. Since they would only visit the cottage on weekends and holidays, and they planned to spend most of their time outdoors enjoying the lake, they wanted a small and budget conscience place to enjoy. We planned around their dream of building a larger master home once they retired. It was critical to understand the couples' vision for their future home and incorporate the same design features in what will ultimately become their guest cottage.
Project Description: Guest cottage designed for new homeowners building on Lake James. Homeowners plan to use the guest cottage until they retire and build a larger home on the property.
