A small custom vacation home that sits on the edge of a private, crystal clear, limestone quarry lake. The 107 acre property insures privacy and seclusion in the natural landscape. The foundation cantilevers over the water by four feet and combines with both fixed and floating decks to accentuate the connection to the water . The exterior is 75% Glass with a soaring hybrid butterfly roofline that provides protection and shading. Numerous sliding glass doors open onto the substantial exterior covered deck spaces or allow for fishing / jumping into the lake directly from the house.
An exceptionally efficient building envelope is combined with a geothermal heat pump, LED Lighting, and reclaimed hot water to keep energy usage/costs low.
