On Lake Conway, the rustic Florida Vernacular style fits admirably
into the landscape. Using natural, unpainted wood and brick, the
Lake House is an unpretentious, but carefully detailed jewel nestled
in the majestic oaks and tropical foliage of the lake edge.
The proportions of the lake house give it a classic and timeless
simplicity, enhanced by the use of natural materials.
The project began with little sketches like this:
The client, and carpenter Thomas Johnston, approved the design based on these sketches and a mutual love of Florida Vernacular Style.
Permit drawings were completed by John J. Reep, Architect, and the building was permitted with no revisions.
