Leelanau County Home
Leelanau County, MI

This family home was designed in a modern style featuring flat roofs with deep fascias and large overhangs, vertical wood siding, and vertical windows with some large expanses of glass along the living and dining areas.  A central room with clerestory windows serves as a focal point from the exterior and also the interior.  A fireplace and large chimney are also located along this clerestory.  The living, kitchen, and dining areas are open and feature large windows with views to the country setting outside.  The garage, which includes a studio workspace, is a separate structure from the main house, but is visually connected by a trellised walkway.  A poured concrete wall that extends out from the main entry door is an impressive exterior element.  The space between the garage and the house is a very unique patio area that is landscaped with pavers and gravel.  The trellised walkway, constructed of wood timbers, frames views of the nearby vegetation.
