Centered on Family
Schroon Lake, NY
Tucked into the woods along the shore of Schroon Lake, this retreat home is a central meeting spot for several generations of the family hailing from the US and beyond. 11"x11" Douglas fir timbers with integrated steel were employed throughout the project, meeting the homeowners' desire for a strong and substantial structure. Ample sized common spaces offer plenty of elbow room for the frequent extended family get-togethers and entertaining by the lake. A bonus space provided the opportunity for a pub room with custom finished timbers, live-edge walnut tops, craft beers, and conversation.
