This gorgeous lakeside renovation began with an intent to open up the compartmentalized floor plan taking full advantage of the impressive view, as well as to enhance the character of the home through unique architectural features and high-end finishes.





Our design team and homeowner collaborated to concept an open layout, removing load bearing walls and creating a seamless flow between the entry, kitchen, dinette, and living area. Large sliding doors surrounded by new, custom windows and an arched transom maximize the lake view and modernize the aesthetic. These additions, along with large windows in the kitchen bring substantially more natural light into the home than existed before.





The kitchen features approximately 100 square feet of counter-to-ceiling glass tile backsplash and a 5’x9’ seamless island countertop of Skara Brae Polished Cambria. The living area boasts a custom fireplace with painted wainscoting and a Cambria surround. Overhead the vaulted ceiling is detailed with Timber Truss Beams that draw the eye to appreciate this focal point in the space. 900 square feet of LVP flooring unifies the different spaces as a whole and the custom rail and wrought iron baluster design provides a beautiful anchor between the different living areas. No detail was too small nor left untouched in our efforts to transform this client’s vision into a captivating reality and bring out the full potential of this lakeside retreat.





“I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Daniel Builders. Everyone has been so nice to work with. We love our “New House”! Customer satisfaction is everything. Chris & David made sure that we were more than satisfied throughout the process. Chris went above and beyond to help us. Rob, Drew, Paul, Laurilyn, and all the folks from DB who participated. All the sub-contractors were great also. Derek and his crew did a great job on the cabinets. We love them. I highly recommend your team to anyone looking to have a worry free process and outstanding results.”
