DRPILLA designed this new 3,000 square foot single family house on a 1.5 acre lakefront lot. The two-story house features an open floor plan highlighting clear story glass windows and an open riser single steel stringer staircase. An exterior stone steel supported bridge leads into the front entrance. Designed site improvements include shallow septic, storm drainage, and infiltration systems compatible with adverse site conditions. Site conditions include an average of over 25% slope, densely spaced neighboring private septic and well water systems, the presence of shallow bedrock ledge, and an environmentally-sensitive water body immediately adjacent downgrade of the site.
