Custom Lakefront Vacation Home on Beaver Island
A custom wood home featuring simple yet elegant wood siding and trim details.

Custom Homes

KM worked with the owner of this simple yet elegant wood-sided home to find a way in which it could have two stories on the back side of a steep dune, for anchoring stability, and the top story perched on the dune to maximize the outstanding view of the beach and the lake beyond. Working together, the plan began to take shape as, one by one, the owner’s wishes were met. There’s plenty of room, both for use and for storage. There’s a walkout deck from the four-season porch, which is an extension of the impressive living room. The asymmetrical roof design is perfect for the prevailing high winds. The blend of wood sidings gives the home a natural and appropriate look, and there are several unique features designed to meet the owner’s needs—such as the window placement at the stairway to the upper floor.

KM Contractors is ready to work with you to figure out the best way to build your new custom home. Don’t reinvent the wheel; take advantage of our experience instead. A rustic location presents several challenges, and those without sufficient familiarity have tried some things that those with more local knowledge knew would not work. No one likes to pay to do it wrong, pay to undo it, and then pay to do it right. We know how to do it right the first time; after all, we were born here, and have lived here all our life.


The site allows the living room to have a walkout deck overlooking the the lake below the tall dune, while the entry is two stories with nicely orchestrated wood siding details to tie the whole house together atop its tall site.
