RENOVATED LAKE HOUSE FAMILY RETREAT– BEFORE AND AFTER*

About This Project

This family lake house was a major renovation that was born out of a grandmother’s desire to share her hometown roots with her grandchildren. We faced a few challenges during the renovation with the client and interior designer out-of-state but good collaboration created a lovely remodel that the homeowner is thrilled with. The lake house was transformed into a family getaway complete with high-end media room and music throughout, integrated security and camera systems, lighting control, gaming set-ups for all to envy and a robust network to support all!

CRAFTSMAN– STYLE CENTERPIECE HOME THEATER*

BEST DEDICATED HOME THEATER

The owners of this renovated Michigan home had dreamed of a home theater in which to entertain friends and family. One of the biggest challenges was designing the theater into a space that had already been framed-out. Our team embraced the challenge and, by collaborating with the homeowner and design team, we were able to create the ultimate entertainment space. The theater is among the first 9.2.4 Dolby Atmos theaters in the upper Midwest and is comprised of Bowers & Wilkins speakers driven by Pioneer Elite. It also features Sony 4K projection, Lutron lighting, 8 custom Fortress theater chairs and custom-painted mural. Complementing the room’s design, Craftsman-style acoustic panels frame the space, with sets on either side designed as “barn doors” that slide open to reveal a state-of-the-art Rec Room. The clever design, innovative technologies and a homeowner’s desire for fun unites the distinct areas into an entertainment space that is enjoyed by all. Read the feature in CE Pro Magazine.

ELEGANT OUTDOOR ENTERTAINING MECCA*

BEST OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT SPACE

The homeowners of this sprawling modern lakefront estate decided to tear down their previous traditional home and start from scratch to create the modern masterpiece that now stands in its place. A huge focus for the homeowners was an outdoor living space that offered several unique areas for entertaining including elegant nooks for dining, spacious areas for sunbathing, shady spots for food prep and TV watching, fun zones for splashing and inviting areas to sip wine beside a dynamic fire feature while listening to music. Wanting to provide simple and convenient control of the outdoor space so the family could enjoy their laid-back lifestyle, we integrated the pool/patio controls with the home’s Elan g! system, enabling access to all indoor and outdoor smart devices and Lutron lighting via a mobile app.Read the feature in CE Pro Magazine.
