This home sits on the beautiful shores of Lake Superior in Marquette, Michigan. After purchasing this summer vacation home the homeowners knew they would need to update the old home and add some additional space for their kids and grandkids.

First, we started by removing an old front porch and adding a 24′ x 16′ 2-story addition with vaulted ceilings. This addition would serve as the dining room and a comfy area to relax, drink your morning coffee, and watch the sunrise over Lake Superior. The inside was completed with tongue and groove on the walls & ceiling and a custom built wood staircase up to the newly remodeled second floor.

Second, we gutted the existing kitchen and installed new rustic hardwood flooring along with new cabinets and countertops.

Third, we gutted the existing living room and install tongue and groove on the walls, rough-sawn plywood on the ceiling, and carpet on the floor.

Fourth, we converted a hallway area and bathroom into two full bathrooms. One bathroom became the bathroom for the master bedroom and the other became the secondary bathroom.

Fifth, we remodeled and expanded the small second floor to include two bedrooms and a full bathroom.

Sixth, we converted the outside patio to an indoor study/den and remodeled the laundry room to keep with the tongue and groove theme.

Seventh, we remodeled both first floor bedrooms by adding new rustic hardwood flooring.

Eighth, we re-roofed the entire home, installed new aluminum soffit & fascia, installed two new exterior doors, and installed new half log siding on the new additions.

What an amazing transformation! Once again we found ourselves working for a great couple; The Hoffman’s are fantastic people and were such a pleasure to work for and become friends with.
