Modern Lakeside Retreat

Grandview Lake – Columbus

October 2020 (Columbus, IN):  Modern Lakeside Retreat construction is underway at Grandview Lake!

For sure, we are excited to see the construction of this new modern lakehouse taking-shape.  Our design solution is a simple response to the challenges of the site.  Basically, the primary challenges focused on drainage (from site and roofs).  These two areas of focus were big issues with the prior structure.  As a matter of fact, water and drainage issues created enough concerns with the prior structure to motivate the rebuild.

We are happy to be working on our second project with this client.

Be sure to check-back, as we’ll be sharing more about the design and construction process in the coming weeks and months!
