Lake Muskoka Home
New Home — Muskoka Lakes Township
We were given a cliffside on which to build a new home. On this challenging site, we built the house to face the lake with a wide veranda raised to treetop level.
We started with the dream of what it would be like to live in a treehouse, high up among the branches, with special views from the main rooms out through the trees to the lake beyond.
After carefully removing those trees that were in the way, we built a foundation platform from which the home could grow. Then we laid out the main rooms broadside to the view, each room beneath a cathedral ceiling, which rises to its’ final height of 25 feet above the Living Room fireplace. Even in the darkest days of winter, each room enjoys a spectacular view of the landscape beyond, with giant windows drawing generous light inside.
