A unique place for summertime entertaining right on the lake. Inspired by the French Country style, this summer kitchen was designed to mimic the existing main Chateau and Adirondack Boathouse located on the lakefront property. With an exterior of stone, cedar shakes and reclaimed oak timbers, each of the three main structures on the property reflect one another to create a seamless and breathtaking estate.

Bringing the outdoors in. In a successful attempt to bring the outdoors in, large exterior cedar and glass bi-folding doors were installed in lieu of windows. With the touch of a button, power phantom screens drop to create a porch-like atmosphere all the while allowing guests to remain within the comfort of the Summer Kitchen structure.

It has been the privilege of my wife and I to use the Nor-Son firm on all our building projects going back nearly 30 years. I can say without hesitation that it was the best decision we ever made.
