Thanks for stopping by. If you’re new around these parts it’s time for our series A 3 hour tour where you virtually join us on some of the houses that catch our eye when we’re out and about on our lake. It’s one of my favorite things to do on a warm summer afternoon driving around the lake.
This week I thought we’d do something a bit different and take a look at some of the unique and charming boat house we’ve noticed along the way. A lot of these go beyond your run of the mill boat storage totally integrating the style of their house, kicking it up a notch on this extreme patch of waterfront property. Many of these include rooms on the top floor of the charming structures. I wouldn’t mind staying a minute or two in one of those rooms, would you?
So let’s get going, shall we?
Here’s a cutie boat house, the different levels peaks and roof lines are so charming. The choice of siding and white trim provide lovely crisp contrast, not to mention the awesome boat and jet ski parked on the dock. I’ll take one of each please.
This charming little boat house with a balcony and cute decorative corbels coordinate seamlessly with the home it belongs to.
I’m really in love with the black trim accents and green roof and tons of deck space and a cool rooftop deck. Is that a tin roof over the dormers? I have a very special love for tin roofs. I always dream of one day redoing our roof in tin. I am also impressed by the lovely coordinating gazebo standing just off in the distance. My husband and I were engaged in a similar gazebo on a lake.
I’m digging this old style boat house, built out of the same charming field stone that is also on the house and the walls lining the property. It could arguably be Shangri La.
There’s a no frills approach to this boathouse with the classic columns lining the walks adding a nice architectural feature.
And finally a modern take on a boat house is presented in this eye catching A-frame. I’m always impressed by the extra attention to detail it requires a homeowner to coordinate all elements of their home into one seamless space. I think it’s particularly evident in something like a boathouse that people love their homes and I love looking!
So until next time, thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
