Custom building is always one part creative execution and one part technical challenge.

CustomHome30 240x160This eastern seaboard-style home was no different. Burkholder and the architect worked to design and build a magnificent northern Michigan home as envisioned by the customer that still conformed to an irregularly shaped piece of property. The result? A grand scale 4,300 square foot, fieldstone-accented residence that has a sense of belonging amidst the trees and water of the region.

The home features:

  • A completely round turret designed for an upstairs office and downstairs sunroom
  • Custom trim and cabinets in the turret
  • Extensive use of indigenous fieldstone
  • Custom-built cherry kitchen, including cabinets and floors
  • Cedar shake roof and siding
  • A family-sized fieldstone fireplace
  • An all-cedar den and game room
  • Covered porches
  • Second level view deck
