Wow, congrats! Life long lake lover as I grew up on the St. Croix river in Wisconsin. We built our retirement dream home on Gull Lake MN and I can't wait to get my dock and boats back in the water. Nothing better than summers spent in the Lake Country of WI, MN, and MI!

Sunrise from last Labor Day weekend and another from mid October.

@STRATUS I like your cabin idea / plans. I looked on their site and they also offer a matching garage - ask them if it comes with the two Broncos in their pics. I have to ask, did you find this company because they had Broncos in their pics or is this a coincidence

Coincidence...but gotta say seeing that made me feel like..."this is my kind of company". Ha!

We have reached out to several builders with little to no response. I think I finally found one. Crossing our fingers.

Nice looking garage. Not very secure. I don‘t want anyone even being able to see into my garage much less access with a glass cutter or rock 😂

Sounds great. How often do you take advantage of your cabin? For is it's going to be about a 4.5 hour drive. However, it's just so different and beautiful...we decided it was worth the drive.
It’s about a 2:30-2:45 drive and we get up roughly 1-2 times/month, year round. Sometimes just for a weekend, sometimes longer depending on work/school schedules.

I just had to find this thread again since I took delivery earlier this week and finally have it up at the cabin.

Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone!

Jealous! We are in San Diego for the weekend for my daughter’s college graduation ceremonies. Normally we would never miss being at the lake for the long Memorial Day weekend. I can only enjoy it through our security cameras.

Agreed! 😊 Have you started construction yet?
Not quite yet. However, the contract is signed for the Modern Alpine cottage.

We purchased three lots (300ft of frontage) and are building two additional "Outposts" for friends and family. See below inspiration pics. We are very excited.

Awesome place and what a view! I grew up in San Diego...it's a great place too! My son almost ended up at UCSD to play volleyball and a good friend of mine went to San Diego State. Btw...how did you manage to build so close to the lake given the setbacks?

We are in the small city of East Gull lake(pop. 995) on the south end of Gull Lake where the set back is only 50 feet. On most of the 46 miles of shoreline the setback is 100 or 150’ - two different counties and two cities all have different rules. The lake level stays almost constant rarely varying more than a couple of inches high or low so we were able to have our walk out basement just 3’10” higher than lake level. We are selling our Minneapolis home next May when our youngest graduates and will spend 5-6 months each summer at our lake house and the winters at our condo in Naples Florida. I’m a lifelong lake lover and enjoy summers in MN more than winters in Florida. :)


Our shoreline was wooded and messy when we built in 2017 but the builder and landscaper did an amazing job.
