Designed to entice nature-lovers, a private sanctuary is built on top of the boat dock to provide a relaxing getaway. "One of the concepts we came up with is to take from the natural beauty we have on property and incorporate that into our build," says host of Yardcore Joel Moss. Emulating the bungalow's original staircase, handrails are designed with a sunburst pattern, and for a lighter, long-lasting option, a set of Adirondack lounge chairs are fashioned from cedar wood.
