VERMONT LAKEFRONT DESIGN

I have had ONE crazy and busy week!  I can't wait to sit down and see what I have missed.
***
Liz and Ed Flynn knew that they had found the perfect lakefront property when they drove into a plot of land with a run down camp sitting on it.  The rest is history.

The couple hired architects Steven and Judith Selin to build a home on the one acre, 75 foot wide lot.  Using as much as they could from the old house, reclaimed wood, and furnishings that were family pieces, the Flynns built a sustainable home.  The couple hired local cabinetmakers and contractors, made the dining table from repurposed wood, and used oil instead of polyurethane on the hardwood floors.

The family have no Wi-Fi or televisions, but there are board games from the original home and a VCR for watching Disney movies.  Now that is a step back in time!  ENJOY!
