This project was a large two-story addition and deck to a home located along the Fox River.  With the house poised atop a small bluff, the site offered challenges and opportunities.  The addition included a great room, with a master bedroom/ bath suite on the level below.  The  multilevel deck created abundant outdoor living space with river views. Special features included a bridge to the pool house and a staircase that winds down the hillside to provide access to the river’s edge.


For this project we created cabinets and built-ins, furniture, trim and masonry.  The goal was to have the indoor and outdoor living spaces flow together, complimenting each other in style and in harmony with nature. The project takes full advantage of this very special site overlooking the river.  The natural landscaping plan incorporated a small waterfall into the hillside.
