This home renovation project turned a tiny old house into a beautiful, functional, and spacious home for a family. The Walloon Lake House is located on the scenic shore of the lake in the northwest part of Michigan, USA.

The old, family-owned summer home is called Windemere on Walloon Lake. It is located near Petoskey, Michigan, where a four-year-old Ernest Hemingway learned from his father to hunt, fish, and camp in the woods and around the lakes of Northern Michigan. Spectacular surroundings and his early experiences in nature instilled a passion for outdoor adventure and living in remote or isolated areas.

Perfect for enjoying the summertime, the modern house design features gorgeous rooms with lovely lake views and offers a fantastic retreat for summer vacations and weekend getaways. The contemporary house design has evolved from a small old house. This creative home renovations project turned the old building into incredible, comfortable, and bright accommodations for the whole family.
