Fire Tower Frame

A small camp in the Adirondacks is home to this mountain style retreat with lake views. A stair tower, Inspired by the local (and historic) fire tower aesthetic in the area, anchors the southeast corner of the house. Plans are for a hybrid timber frame design with large open living spaces, a vaulted great room, a main-floor master suite, and a shed roof screen porch that runs alongside 2/3 of the home. A walk-out goes right to dock space, making the most out of the lakefront footage.
