We were pretty fortunate to be introduced to our newest Client’s by a contractor we had worked with in the past. Jim and Marilyn are a great and fun couple who are wanting to turn their early 70’s cabin into a full time residence. Jim builds custom bicycles and will also move his creative shop space here as well. (We may need to incorporate some pedals, gears, chains, etc. into the design!)  I gave them a tour of  the Pine Lake Retreat which had similar features they were interested in and luckily for me we were hired!

The upper level of the cabin will be wiped clean and a new open floor plan will be developed making it the primary living area. Several additions will reshape the exterior along with a new bold roof form and a change in siding. I had my camera with to document the existing conditions and decided to film a bit as well. Check out the video below to get a feel of the current cabin then keep checking back and see how this project develops over the next several months!
