Renovation
New England-Style Cottage
Waconia, Minnesota
Start with a midcentury story-and-a-half bungalow, add a savvy and effervescent homeowner in love with cottages and lake nostalgia, stir in a total renovation with additions, and you get this lake cottage full of sunshine and fun.

First, a two-and-a-half-car garage was added, with a large bunkroom loft over. The existing garage at the opposite end of the house was turned into a timber-framed screened porch with a massive fieldstone fireplace. In between, the whole house was rearranged and renovated with a new kitchen, great room, dining room, home office/project room, master bedroom suite, mudroom/laundry and large walk-in pantry. A large front entry porch with massive recycled timber columns and a curvaceous eyebrow roof was added to create a welcoming entrance for visitors and add architectural interest to the fa├žade. Studio Hittle also developed the landscape plan.
