Lake House with Magnificent Views

A long time customer got in touch with Baker Contracting looking to build a new camp on Schroon Lake. Both floors are finished with sliding glass doors which go along the length of the back of the house, allowing the beauty of the lake and mountains inside no matter the weather. Bi-level decks with cable rail allow for plenty of room outdoors also to enjoy the breathtaking views. An open floor plan throughout, modern kitchen, huge family room on the lower level, one and a half baths plus an outdoor shower makes this home a wonderful place for gathering with groups of loved ones. From the framing to the final finishing touches, Baker Contracting was on-site proving the quality craftsmanship and attention to detail they are known for resulting in another highly satisfying experience for our customer.
