510 Lake House

I had the pleasure of working on this design-build project a few years ago, but it is just now gettin’ some internet lovin’. A super fun, well designed project that has a better story more than anything. Hunter Leggitt decided to design and build this little 1,100 sf Lake house in Lake Isabella, CA with a team of Architecture students with little to no building experience. I was lucky enough to be one of those free laborers. It opened my eyes to custom design-build projects and I have been hungry for more ever since. Lake Isabella is known for white water rafting on the Kern River, but what drew the owner, Jonathan Watts, to this location was the wind surfing on the Lake. This serves as his wind surfing and family get away from their busy lives in Santa Monica. Check out the full story on Arch Daily.
