Wrap Your House Around This

Find the perfect lakefront site that inspires you, add a covered porch of course, then build your home around it !

What’s the best way to build a lakefront home in Southwest Michigan?

You’ve decided to build the lakefront home of your dreams in Southwest Michigan.  Now what?

The most important step is to find the ideal lakefront site for your needs & lifestyle… one that captivates and inspires you… one that you dream about coming to during the warm Michigan summers. Do you want a high-density neighborhood with homes right next door… or would you prefer a low-density neighborhood with room to breath and space between homes? Do you want the traditional “green-grass yards”, or would you prefer low-maintenance plantings surrounded by nature? Do you want the crowded downtown, or would you prefer to be away from it all, yet within a short drive to town? Do you want to walk to a shared beach, or have a private sandy beach of your own?

Many people make the mistake of choosing a house plan first, then a site, then trying to make them work together.

The problem is that there are countless house plans and a wide variety of sites, some of which simply aren’t meant for one-another. For instance, you may fall in love with a house plan designed for a long/narrow site. When placed on a wide/spacious lakefront site, it’s unable to take advantage of the sweeping lakefront views from all the rooms and falls short of your expectations.
