Today, we are sharing an overview of the renovation plan for the lake house! We will dive into each space in greater detail in future posts. For now, here is a rough outline of what we would like to do to the home, including some pictures that are serving as inspiration!
Let's begin with the exterior. We are going to be busy this summer! We will tackle the exterior after the interior is complete. We plan to replace the siding with new, vertical steel siding that will look like shiplap (which is a new product that looks incredible!) We would like to replace the front door with something more modern that will let in more light. Unfortunately, the roof is new so it needs to stay. I don't love the color, so I may DIY painting the roof! TBD. Otherwise, we will work with the brown shingles (she types begrudgingly). The trim will be painted a fresh new color. We are debating - I want white, Ty wants navy. We plan to build an expansive porch (as the front of the house overlooks the lake) and redo the landscaping...I'm thinking a simple row of white hydrangeas!
Here's are two images that are inspiring me!
We will rip out the built in storage, redo the drywall, replace the light fixture, and add some coat hooks above a built in bench!
I love this little scene!
This room has the BEST view of the lake! Hence, we are going to replace that small window with an 80" window spanning nearly the width of the room. We will also be refinishing or replacing the hardwood. We will add six to eight canned lights to brighten up the space.
Here is a mood board I threw together....likely, this will evolve and change, but it's a starting point!
