Lakeside Vacation Retreat

Set on a bluff overlooking a rural lake, this spacious, open, loft-like Lakeside Vacation Retreat addition more than doubled the size of the original house, transforming a small vacation cottage into a year-round retreat for its owners. The home features Douglas fir exposed timbers, bamboo floors, and motorized skylights that allow the whole house to breathe and be easily ventilated.

Materials: Bamboo flooring; douglas fir rafters, beams, and ceilings; oak guardrails with tempered glass panels.
