Along the rugged banks of the Betsie River, find this modern rustic getaway offering a refreshing escape from the ordinary. CMB Construction worked with its cost-conscious clients to design and build a minimalistic four-season cottage that is both unique and practical. The simple shed-roofed structure and its matching detached garage are clad in an innovative new Michigan-made wood siding that mimics antique barnwood and blends harmoniously into the wooded setting. Sleek contemporary windows with modern louvered overhangs overlook the wild scenery. Inside, a restrained materials palette creates a calm flow between spaces and lets the riverfront views shine. Sleek and durable polished concrete floors contrast with the warmth of exotic teak wood accents, with polished stone and brushed metals adding a subtle gleam to the crisp design lines. Lofty ceilings and custom built-ins make the most of the modest square footage.  The U-shaped plan hugs a breezy outdoor living room connected to the main interior space by two sets of French doors. CMB Construction proudly presents this home as an example of its philosophy that a custom home doesn’t have to be costly.
