As shown in the photos, these Pinterest-worthy designs are a must-have for those who want to make the most out of relaxing by the lakeshore.
Light Up Your Outdoor Space
Building a lake home is building memories. It’s building and creating spaces for you and your loved ones to gather and enjoy. Curating a place that will encourage countless conversations and laughs is something that takes time and planning. A part of creating such a place is encompassing a warm and welcoming environment both inside and outside like this Northern Light Cottage, built in conjunction with Rehkamp Larson Architects, pictured below. Through thoughtful attention to detail, our clients created a perfect Pinterest-worthy outdoor space that can be enjoyed for generations.
Lakeside pools not only make your home Pinterest-worthy, but they are also functional. Pools are enjoyed by people of all ages and can bring a new level of depth to your outdoor space. Plus, water temperatures in Minnesota can sometimes be frigid and uninviting. An outdoor pool can extend the season into fall no matter what the temperature is outside, especially with a neighboring cabana and fireplace to warm up next to.
If you’re looking for designs to implement that don’t top the popularity charts in Minnesota but still create that wow-factor, you might want to Pin this! Outdoor showers are a great way to add interest to your outdoor space while also being functional. Whether it’s the kids coming home after a long day on the boat, or your dog after multiple jumps off the dock, outdoor showers are a great way to keep the mess outside rather than throughout your lake home.
As we previously mentioned, lake homes have immense opportunity to create life-long memories for the entire family. It’s a landing place for multi-generational loved ones from all over the country to gather and enjoy the summer together. If that’s your intended use for your lake house, adding a bunk room for the kids is a must-have. The ability to comfortably host your loved ones grows to new heights with the addition of a bunk room.
