When a family's inherited 60-year-old lakeside cabin needs updating and more room for gatherings, brothers Chase and Brock Jurgensen blow out the back wall to take over the huge porch. Now bright with a cozy wraparound view of the lake, the rustic-modern interior features a breakfast bar and touches of branches, barnwood and cables, while outside is a new pergola and handmade barnwood table for fair weather meals.
Chase and Brock use salvaged items and reclaimed materials to create bright, fully functional guest quarters in the dark, unsafe storage space of an original World War II Quonset hut. The sleeping area features custom beds, and the kitchen is built out with handmade butcher block countertops.
Brock and Chase update a fourth-generation family cabin on Lake Charlotte, Minnesota. They give one room a bigger feel with new paint and a custom barnwood-framed window, and a breakfast nook adds a great space for family gatherings.
Chase and Brock transform a lackluster 1990s-looking family cabin by giving it a beautiful open floor plan. The living room, dining area and kitchen come alive when the brothers add a large center island with handmade wood stools and ceiling beams designed to look like original timber framing.
Brock and Chase are giving a lake house much-needed updates, starting with getting rid of the rubber flooring, carpet and dated accordion door. Then, Brock creates one-of-a-kind barnwood wall art and sliding barnwood doors to give the bright modern home rustic charm.
