The clients for this project are from the Chicago area, and construction of their home was completed in 2017. The general contractor for this project was Richard Kinney of Knapps Creek Builders in Blue River, Wisconsin.
The clients requested a home inspired by a famous fishing shack in Rockport, Massachusetts called "Motif No.1", shown below. I hadn't heard of it, but according to the New England Historical Society, it may be the most-painted building in the United States.
This will be a vacation home and eventual retirement home for my clients. They purchased most of their cabinets from Ikea, and many of the furnishings for the home were acquired from thrift stores.
