McKernon and Michael Bird
This renovation involved two early 1960’s camps, which sit on steep property on the shore of Lake George. The owners wished to add living space and update the camps without changing the style of the Adirondack rustic appearances. The terrain was dramatically regraded and stonework was added to the landscaping. The most interesting part of this update is the addition to the larger camp. That includes a second floor bedroom and shower that are open to great views. The bedroom is accessible only by a sheltered exterior staircase. The shower is cantilevered off of the back of the house and its three sides are open to the great outdoors! The new dining addition has a fireplace and a bar area with a spectacular view of the lake. A loft was added to the existing structure to create open space with another room and is accessed by using an intriguing “ladder” that is surprisingly easy to climb (see photos). True Adirondack homes are known for their outstanding craftsmanship, and we are pleased to be recognized as a builder with proven expertise in restoring, renovating and replacing this detailed style.
