Family Heritage Cottage

Project: The homeowners had purchased a cottage on a lake peninsula as a summer getaway home for their extended family. They wanted to replace it with a cottage that would be a gathering place for generations to come — large enough for the family but small enough to sit comfortably on the peninsula, leaving ample lawn for grandchildren to play. The new cottage’s great room and two bunkroom suites accommodate larger gatherings, while a secluded master suite provides the grandparents with a quiet oasis.

Design team: Dan Nepp and Tom Van de Weghe, TEA2 Architects.
