“We didn’t want to necessarily build a home but create a lifestyle space. The home is the vehicle to expanding your mind, body, and spirit. Building on the elevated lake lot allowed us to create floating spaces over land, air, and water. These spaces delight the eyes, refresh the spirit, and provide unlimited activities.” -Matt Ewers
