Island Lake Home Three

Duluth, Minnesota

Designed to be a summer cabin, this four bedroom home is large enough for family retreats at the lake. The main level’s open floor plan gives a spacious feeling to the connected living room, kitchen & dining and epoxy finished concrete floors add consistency throughout. Large windows on the west walls of the cabin maximize the beautiful view of Island Lake from all the most important rooms. There’s a large 9’x9′ laundry off the entryway, full bath, bedroom with a walk in closet, and a sun room accessed by a 12′ wide Marvin french door. The custom kitchen has a large island with bar stool seating with additional pantry storage tucked under the stairs. A gas fireplace adds comfort to the living room and the ceiling is open to the loft area above. Upstairs are three more bedrooms and a full bath with clerestory windows to let in natural light and still have privacy. The roof is framed with parallel chord trusses resulting in a vaulted ceiling across the entire second floor and finished with tongue & groove pine for a more rustic cabin appeal.
