Westwood Lakehouse

The challenge of this project was to find a way to create new living space within very tight setbacks on a small, steep lot. The property was already home to a boathouse with a living room and two bedrooms, but shoreline restrictions prevented any thoughts of expanding that space. Instead we were granted a zoning exception allowing reduction of the street setback. That provided a small area directly in back of the boathouse to build a 2 ½ story timber frame home.
