The homes interior features picture windows, slider & clerestory windows to bring light & nature inside, w/ views of the lake, tree canopy & wildlife.

Beech wood for the cathedral ceiling & maple wood for the island & built-in bench were milled from trees on site.

For energy efficiency, theres a living green roof by Inhabitect, geothermal heating & AC system & radiant in-floor heating, preheater for the water heater, heat recovery ventilation system, induction cooktop, and Energy Star Bosch, Samsung & Electrolux appliances. Move outside to relax on the covered portion of the huge patio w/built-in outdoor firepl. & enjoy the view of the lake, dock & native-plant landscaping. Watch for eagles, listen to loons, or grab your fishing pole & catch some dinner before the shorebirds do. Tinker in a heated, 26x21 attached garage and/or put your workshop in the detached 20x22 garage. A winding asphalt driveway leads to all. No public lake access & motors are limited to 3 h.p. A conservation easement across the lake protects 1,500 ft. shoreline from further development. Building requirements protect your investment, and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is just across M-22.
