INSIGHTS

Coming Soon to a Big Lake near you!

Construction has started on a new private residence on the North Shore of Lake Superior.

The design program was to create a unique, modern home that would maximize views to the Lake, while also providing a calm, relaxing & restorative environment.

The home will comfortably weather the lake exposure and the extremes of our Northern MN location. The large glass areas were mitigated with the use of tri-pane, fiberglass windows. The flat roof assembly contains tapered rigid insulation with an average R value of 62. The thermally robust walls are a hybrid pairing of a 2×6 bearing wall with dense pack cellulose and 4” exterior nail base (SIP) panels for a combined R value of 36.

The home will have LED lighting throughout and will be heated via a high efficiency condensing boiler with in-floor heat on the main level and European style panel radiators on the 2nd level.

Other design features include a custom steel staircase and a “swiss army” entry storage, TV and fireplace room divider.
