These clients were great. They had a general list of features, but no specific design. They were very open minded and willing to trust our professional experience in guiding the layout and design of the project. I'm not sure who was more pleased with the results, us or them. We dubbed this a bit of a deck/dock hybrid with functional space on land as well as over the water. There is a retractable movie screen in front of the boat slip for outdoor movie watching in the evenings and a rope swing for cooling off during the daytime heat. The steps of stairs leading from the home down to the waterfront tied it all together and added a perfect finishing touch. Definitely a favorite of ours.
