Don't you just love a lake home?
These photos are a little rough as construction is entering the home stretch, and we'll post some more hopefully when the job is complete, but it's such a pretty house that I wanted to share. This is a great example of what a custom builder can do, in tandem with quality partners.
Attention to detail shows with numerous accents and points of interest both inside and out. On this particular fireplace stack, we worked hard with Joe and the homeowner to aesthetically achieve the look and configuration they wanted, while maintaining structural integrity. After some scratching of heads we've arrived right where it needed to be. Very much looking forward to seeing this face completed, and what a beautiful room it will highlight.
Take a moment to have a look at the Orendorf Custom Homes site for some of the other fine work they've produced. ~by Karl Zarling
Here are a few pics of another terrific home built by the venerable Barenz Builders.
The exterior stone, provided by our friends at Halquist Stone, is a custom blend of full stone...no thin veneer here. It's a gorgeous combination of irregular shapes while still maintaining a tidy and somewhat uniform look, and the color palette gets more interesting the deeper you look at it. Nothing cookie cutter here, and very much in keeping with the overall home design and impression.
And If I do say so, this is a particularly beautiful fireplace face; the combination of the 'dry stack' look, along with the stone selection really makes it pop, in this soaring and impressive great room. Just a great balance between contemporary and rustic...great choices made and really first rate all the way around. ~by Karl Zarling
