Shingle Style Lake Home

Lake Lotawana, MO

The transformation of this lake home began with the client’s need for more bathrooms and bedrooms to accommodate extended family that gather here on summer weekends. With some “inside the box” thinking, we were able to add 3 baths and 2 bedrooms, all within the existing house footprint.

The client also preferred the street-side of the house to have a look that would be appropriate for a lake-side home. We proposed a shingle-style design for its coastal influence. The clients loved these adjustments and asked us to renovate the lakeside also.

Studying the lake-side elevation, we recognized how the current deck was blocking the view down the hill to the lake. We proposed narrowing and covering the deck and stepping down a patio to provide the needed entertaining space but at a lower level that did not block the lake view. It has been such a delight to collaborate with the extended family and the builder to transform this house into a place that better meets this expanding family’s needs.
