The homeowners purchased this second lakefront property with the intent of living there full time. However, the interior and exterior required a full renovation.

2020 saw the landscaping, decking and siding updated. 2021 was the year to tackle the inside. Specifically, the kitchen, bathrooms and basement. The result, an updated, post and beam style design with gorgeous fixtures, cabinets, lighting and more.

The Success Story

Finished Basement

The homeowners love to entertain their family and friends. With this in mind, they needed additional space. Specifically, for housing guests, a private home office, a home gym and a spot for everyone to chill out. The solution: a finished basement with rustic man cave and custom bar.

Master Bedroom & Bath

Located on the main floor are the master suite, kitchen and a full bathroom. The master bath was completely gutted, and the room redesigned to be one open, seamless space. With heated floors, custom cabinetry, ultra-quiet fans, and a shower built for two, this bathroom might be one of our best yet!


Moving along to the kitchen, where the first item you see is the island. Dura Supreme cabinets coupled with a copper prep sink make up this work station.

All the laminate countertops were replaced with marble and custom fitted around a hammered copper farmhouse sink. To aid the chef of the family, cable lights were strung above from the post and beams to illuminate the space.

In the far corner, the laundry closet (which was moved to the master bath), was converted into a spacious pantry with custom sliding door. As you turn to leave the kitchen, a rugged, copper exhaust range hood extends above a WOLF range and oven.

Main Floor Full Bath

The full bath has that “wow” factor. With a lively, patterned tile floor, custom cabinetry and fixtures coupled with a natural stone shower. Any guest would be spoiled to stay here. As a result, it is one of our favorite spots in the house!

Second Floor Guest Bath

Walking upstairs to the second floor, we peek inside the guest bath. While not as showy as the one below, its simplicity and natural, neutral design is what appeals to us.


We would like to thank Lighthouse Contracting Group and all the tradesmen they use. The project went extremely well and on schedule. We had constant communication concerning the renovations and always felt heard and involved. The craftsmanship is impeccable and has shown us what true quality construction is! They went above and beyond our expectations and requests. Best renovation experience ever...

Our customers requested a “Move That Bus” experience and our lips were sealed until reveal day. That was 4 months in the making!
