A Lakeside Michigan Residence with Extensive Outbuildings and Arcades
This two-story rectangular Lakeside Michigan residence extended the landscape of out-buildings connected by arcades, creating an entry court as well as protected patios overlooking the water views.
Out-buildings, arcades, and a master suite addition create a welcoming entry court for this Lakeside Michigan residence as guests pull up to the home.
A 100 ft. retractable windowed porch opens this Michigan residence up to the landscape and lake. The new master suite living and exterior shower pavilion creates a new terrace, opening to the views while protecting from the wind and providing privacy from adjacent properties.
This charming garden pavilion creates the entry court for one of the out-buildings. It provides an area for the serious gardener as well as an informal dining area. It was designed so it could be converted into a guest house complete with a full bathroom.
