Lakeside Modern Cottage (2019)

Construction on new Lakeside Modern Cottage on Lake Lemon in Unionville, Indiana is underway.  The project broke ground in fall 2017 for a an extended family retreat located right on beautiful Lake Lemon south of Martinsville and north of Bloomington.

Our client has owned this property for about 25 years and it has served as primarily a weekend destination during that time.  The site and lake is a fabulous family recreation spot for all water-activities, and this particular site abuts a protected forest preserve on one side with no worry of future development.  As some surrounding neighbors have been renovating their properties, our client decided it was time to do the same and invest in the long-term for themselves and future generations.

Our client called HAUS | Architecture For Modern Lifestyles to begin the design process, with WERK | Building Modern providing support on the construction side.  Check out HAUS’ website for the design side of the story.

With HAUS + WERK, our client benefits from daily Architect involvement to coordinate all trade contractors and protect and enhance the design vision during the construction process.  Every design, detail, and cost decision goes through the Owner and Architect, which is really important if design is a priority.  Thanks to Chris Adams for his daily oversight, framing, and trim carpentry work.  Thanks to all of the other trade contractors, many of whom we are working with for the first time due to the project’s location.

The construction of this project is underway, so please check-back as we will be posting periodic updates as we move forward.  We expect substantial completion in late summer 2018.
