Weekend Retreat

Protected from the elements by the sand dunes of southwestern Michigan on a heavily wooded three-acre site, this original kit-built log-cabin-style house was renovated and expanded from a year-round home to an ample weekend retreat. The existing two-car garage was converted into a studio and screened-in porch to enjoy the breezes from Lake Michigan, a short walk away. New vehicular access moved around the house with an existing large pine tree providing a visual shield the living room and the parking.
