Blueprint for Improvement: More room for family on Lake Sweetwater

0

BACKGROUND:

Built in 1974, this waterfront home in Ninevah, Ind., is a welcome weekend getaway destination for a busy Fishers family. 

THE CHALLENGE:

The 1,700-square-foot, two-story home didn’t offer the homeowners and their grown children a lot of livable space, indoors or out. Odd-sloped ceilings in the living and dining area cut into valuable floor space. The previous addition to the second floor wasn’t taking full advantage of the lake views. 

THE SOLUTION:

  1. The small windows in the second-floor living area were replaced with a wide, four-panel sliding glass door, which offers unobstructed views of the water.
  2. By adjusting the roofline on the second floor, the sloped ceiling in the living area was removed, providing an openness that the space was initially lacking.
  3. Luxury vinyl flooring was chosen for the living area, thanks to its durability and water-resistant properties.
  4. The second-floor deck was added and extends past the screened porch to provide ample room for relaxing with friends and family.
  5. Tongue-and-groove carsiding was used on the second-floor deck ceiling.
