Here you can see the results of their amazing craftsmanship and talent in this home. From the very front of the home, it looks as though it might be quite small, but then over the bridge that acts as the entrance way into the home, you'll see that the home is much larger than it appears to be. This is such an incredible design and build, with the home set a few feet away from the edge of a cliff connected to the cliff by a sturdy wooden bridge which incites some adventure whenever entering the home. Entering into the home through the front door, there is a breathtaking view of the lake framed by the curved wall of windows and timber. Storage space and closets are on the entrance level, and then the rest of the home is down a flight of curved stairs with a balcony looking over the open living room with soaring wood ceilings. The main level includes the lovely living room which boasts stunning views from the windows, and there is also another seating room nearby which has a fireplace in it for intimate moments. Nearby is the kitchen which is tucked away in a corner but still remains open to the rest of the home as well. The black granite countertops draw the eye in, and the light wood cabinets fill the room with brightness. There's even some seating around the island for some in kitchen eating.
There's also a dining area close by the kitchen which would be the perfect place for family meals. Then, there is also access to the patio on the back where people can dine and relax. The bedrooms in the home all have fabulous views as well, and the master bathroom includes a jetted tub with a separate shower stall. A home like this one would be the perfect lakeside family home or a vacation home on the lake. New Dawn Developments ensures that each of their customers gets the home they are dreaming of, and they'll work closely with each customer on their home from the design to the build and completion of the home. They also build smaller homes and cabins as well if customers are looking for something a little smaller and more budget friendly. You can look through their designs and completed projects on their website to get an idea of the other projects they've done and get inspired for your own log dream home.
