Earlier this week I had the pleasure of photographing this home on Mathews Lake in Trego, WI. (Although that’s the postal address, this lake home is actually located about halfway in between Minong and Webb Lake. Or, if you’re not from northwest Wisconsin and want larger towns for landmarks, it’s in between Danbury and Hayward.)
But enough geography. Back to the lake. This beautiful lake home is in a great location, and it has a great waterfront. Something tells me this one will go fast. For more photos, just scroll on down.
When I photographed this NW WI lake cabin in Solon Springs, it was like shooting two different cabins. And it kind of was. Let me explain….
Apparently about ten years ago its owners and their builders came up with an amazing idea for renovating and expanding it. It was on a narrow lot, and the only way to add on was vertically. But rather than adding a second story to the cabin that was already there, they added a new first story. The builders lifted up the old cabin, built a new first story under it, and then gently lowered the old cabin down onto its new first floor. I wish I could have seen that process. It seems to go totally against the old “start at the bottom and work your way up” idea.
For more photos, just scroll on down. And remember, no matter how different they may look, these are photos of the same cabin.
This NW WI lake home near Barnes has many nice touches inside and out. I especially enjoyed some of the current owners’ whimsical decorations, like the moose and the horse in the living room.
I wasn’t sure what this photo shoot would be like. There was a good chance that morning might be rainy, but it turned out to be a lovely morning up at the lake. For more, just scroll on down.
