What began as a small, dilapidated walkway around the house became a stunning outside lake view retreat. This extensive renovation completed the vision of a classical lakehouse with hidden amenities and attention to all the details. The Challenge: Seamlessly Blending the Old and New in a [...]
This Mid-century Modern house was born in a barn -- literally. Featured as the 1959 Indianapolis Home Show's model home, it was first constructed in a cattle barn at the Indiana Fairgrounds.

Because sometimes the only place to start is over. [...]
Summer days in Indiana evoke images of outdoor gatherings: grilling, eating al fresco, splashing in the pool, and laughing together well into the evening hours as the kids chase fireflies in the yard. That was the dream we helped our clients realize with their new pool house. [...]
