The goal of this project was to make the most of the Lake Winnisquam waterfront. The homeowners wanted to fully experience lake life using multiple outdoor living spaces. The design build process began the summer of 2019 with the renovation starting spring of 2020.

The entire exterior of the home was sided with Boral TruExterior siding and trim. It is a low maintenance, moisture resistant wood-alternative that looks just like wood once it is painted. The homeowner chose a smooth white finish in a nickel gap and board and batten design.

All the white windows in the home were replaced with black Pella windows and a front porch was constructed. These were crucial design details that gave this traditional home that sought after, industrial farmhouse look. One last detail on the front of the home, was the addition of a garage overhang with smart, ambient lighting.

On the back of the house, we built a 16’ x 19’ screened in porch with cathedral ceiling. Each fir board was painstakingly chosen to build the tongue and groove design. The screen porch houses a 14-foot outdoor kitchen, fit for a chef with features like 100% weatherproof cabinets, Lynx appliances, a powerful exhaust hood and UV, scratch and stain resistant countertops. On the one wall, framed by insect, moisture-resistant board and batten siding, is a smart television nook. Another great feature for getting the family outdoors!

This outdoor living space also includes a sitting area with fire pit, plumbed into the propane, and a catwalk that leads you to a sitting/conversation area. The deck itself is Azek TimberTech PVC decking in the cypress color. The cocktail rail on the radius railing creates those clean lines that lead you from one area to another.
This entire outdoor living space is custom designed for all day lake living. At night, the smart ambient lighting can be seen on the deck posts, under the steps and inside the ceiling of the screened in porch. Each light can be controlled via an app on the homeowner’s phone.

Builders quote: The biggest challenge with this outdoor living project was building within the 50-foot setback of the lake. Initially, we did not think we would be able to add a screened in porch. However, by designing the stairs inside the deck footprint, we were able to meet the homeowner’s outdoor living goals.
