Eight Years Later and Still Loving Their Home!

We have THE Best Clients. Our firm designed this award-winning home for our clients 8 years ago. Our clients have since sold their business and retired. We've remained in touch over the years, and families like this one, are the reason we love what we do every day. 

Here are 3 drone pictures they sent us, along with this Email:

We still very much love our home..very regularly during cocktail hour we'll look around and say "can you believe this place ???"...still...eight years later, we are blessed to have this home and now that I don't have to travel for work every week, I actually finally live here full time and I love every minute of it !!

Mt. Sunapee Duck Drop

Image result for mt sunapee duck drop

It is been an usually busy season for our firm this summer, thankfully, which is why I haven't posted anything here lately!

We've enjoyed working with new clients, finished a few projects for our current clients, plus Jeremy and I were dealing with two category 5 hurricanes which devastated much of the Caribbean. We own property there....but that's a story for another time. 

For now, I'd like to share some information about an upcoming fun event which takes place tomorrow at Mt. Sunapee NH. Bonin Architects  is pleased to be one of the many great sponsors and prize donors for this fun family event. Please take a look and we hope to see you there!

Here is a link to the duck drop event

Our Clients Truly Make the Difference!

Our wonderful clients, Rick & Cindy

Many lakefront homes existed before the adoption of zoning regulations. In part, this is both benefit and challenge when building a new home. For these homeowners, it was the impetus for freedom in design focused on family and enjoyment of the Lake.

Striving for creative solutions that were “ any way fun and inventive”, the clients eagerly asked we share all concepts with them during the architectural design process. Unique ideas and existing treasures were consistently explored and incorporated; such as the salvaged porthole windows and the reclaimed chestnut in the recreation room. The narrow lot offered challenges imposed by setbacks from neighbors and Lake Sunapee itself. However, creativity and thoughtful arrangement of rooms allow the design to capture views from all levels of the home. The highlight, a folding glass NanaWall for unobstructed lake views from the main floor.

Thank you, Rick and Cindy, for sharing your adventure with Bonin Architects! It was a pleasure, and we wish you many, many years of enjoyment on the lake with family and friends. Please view our website, for more information about our firm.
