This home renovation project turned a small 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 north-west part of Michigan, USA.

The old family owned summer home called Windemere on Walloon Lake, is located near Petoskey, Michigan, where as a four-year-old Ernest Hemingway learned from his father to hunt, fish and camp in the woods and 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 summer time, the modern house design features gorgeous rooms with nice views of the lake and offers a fantastic retreat for summer vacations and weekend getaways. The modern house design has evolved from a small old house. This creative home renovations project turned the old building into wonderful, comfortable and bright accommodations for the whole family.
