North Lake Tahoe Lakefront
Overview of Project
Property was purchased as an Old Tahoe Lakefront Log Cabin where our Client wanted to keep that log feeling however with the accommodations of a new home. We set out to tear down the existing cabin and rebuild a new 3,200+ square foot, leaving the detached garage/mother-in-law unit as is. We were able to add a covered walkway connecting the two buildings and draw inspiration of the old into the new by reusing some of the fixtures from the old cabin and incorporating them into the new design. We added the help of Aspen Leaf Interiors (Olivia Osborne) to assist with the interior design to bring in colors/ideas that finished off this relaxing retreat that is enjoyed by our client year-round.
Keeping the feel of a cabin, we were able to mix a wide array of colors/textures into the design including steel, hardwoods such as cedar, walnut and alder, cultured stone and porcelain to assemble a well balanced theme. This home has no shortage of sleeping areas with its 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths.
This Client had a specific desired look for the exterior which included our mason sourcing three different types of exterior stone sourced from Montana and Oklahoma to blend together and achieve the variety of colors they wanted. This lead us to incorporate a built-in barbecue with stainless steel drawers/doors into the mix and a fire-pit area with bench seating for the whole family into the rock work. The lakeside patio is finished with large pavers that blends the color of the vertical stone together for a seamless transition. We took it so far to install a fully pavered permeable driveway and walkways in a similar color pallet to draw everything together for a spectacular look that will last the test of time. We incorporated an Andersen Window collapsible wall into the project to open up the dining area to the waterfront which is covered so it can be used year-round if desired. Interior false beams were built and assembled onsite by our in-house carpenters to add the Tahoe touch to the project.
