Bridging environments | the award-winning, low-profile retreat that lightly touches its landscape, paying tribute to both its homeowners’ affinity for nature and art.
Thanks again to our client and collaborators!
We are so happy how Grandview is turning-out (nestled in the trees).
The pre-existing tree canopy and lakeside location is such an idyllic setting.
So much work goes into dreaming and creating a work of architecture. Working with our clients to come-up with the design concept, then the key details may only get you 25% there.
You have to have really great communication between Owner, Architect, and Construction Team from beginning-to-end to get you to the finish-line. We are almost to a-hundred!
Now that our excellent clients have moved-in to the Bridge House, they brought along their curious friend who stands watch!
Next it’s time to work-out the little kinks, including furnishings. As art enthusiasts and collectors, Lance and Laura have made it a priority to furnish both interior and exterior with art – starting with this friendly fellow.
He seems friendly yet curious, exuding just enough authority to help keep the peace.
Regional Modern Farmhouse design + pricing is underway and just about ready to spring forward into construction.
Exterior wood siding installation is underway at Bridge House in Douglas, Michigan.
Here on the elevated porch we can see how the west fin-wall and soffits are coming together. Soon thereafter, we’ll be installing the industrial metal panels in extra dark bronze and black. Now that rough-ins and drywall are wrapping-up, we’ll be sharing the fun stuff (exterior + interior details + finishes)!
We are working through the finer details now, including final interior fixtures, finishes, and bridge details. Stay tuned for more updates!
We are happy to report that framers have completed most rough-framing at Bridge House.
February weather was “brutal”. Now that windows are installed and with even colder weather coming, it’s time to focus on inside work. Indeed, the upcoming week’s forecast says highs in the low-teens. Let the craft rough-ins commence!

Construction on Bridge House in Douglas, Michigan has commenced!
In fact, concrete piers are now well underway. Please check out the project page for progress photos.
HAUS’ comprehensive design process has clearly communicated design options and solutions for client review and approval.
For that reason, client and construction team have less unknowns to worry about during the construction phase.
