1930's cottage addition to remod

This project was a pleasure to work on time after time after time. These wonderful owners had a very rustic cottage right on the water of a northern Michigan lake.

To upgrade it by tearing it down would never allow them to build that close to the water again.

So it was picked up off the ground with steel beams and a new foundation and cottage was built up and over the original with all new wiring, plumbing, etc.
Then a bedroom wing was added the following year.

Then a kitchen and dining wing was added the year after that.

The kitchen and dining wing was constructed using structural insulated panels (SIPs) for the renovation. This was more evidence that SIPs are versatile as well as durable and energy efficient, and if they can be utilized in any form of construction, the owners will get a return on their investment.
