This lakeside residential project includes a new bulkhead, terrace and safe access path from a rower's storage barn to a nearby landing at lake's edge. A steep, seven foot grade change along the access path is negotiated with monolithic granite ramped steps broad enough to manage the beam of the scull. Curving native granite retaining walls step down the hillside in rhythm with the treads.

A new, locally quarried granite terrace creates a transition to the landing. An irregular band of river stone (found on-site) at the terrace edge references the ever-changing qualities of the lakeshore water, and newly planted native groundcover along the path compliments the modest bungalow architecture.
