McKeague Residence

This kitchen was renovated as part of a larger restoration and renovation project for David and Nancy McKeague at their home in East Lansing, Michigan. The kitchen features Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry in Their “Dove White” enamel finish. The doors are “full overlay” and the Turnings and carved elements are from Raymond Enkobol. The appliances are Sub-Zero and Wolf.

Conlin Residence

The Conlins hired us to renovate their kitchen after looking at several other kitchen companies because our design inspired them. The existing home is a 1950’s ranch in East Lansing, that has both “Modern” and “Prairie” influences. The Conlins were excited about our concept of “Arts and Crafts for their new kitchen as The Prairie School of Design has its roots in that movement. The warm wood tones and unique architectural elements fit seamlessly with the home.

Holmes Cottage

This project involved the construction of a 2,600 s.f. cottage on Lake Michigan. The owner wanted to retain the home’s position on the beach, so only the foundation was saved and used in the construction of the new home. This required permits from the Department of Environmetal Quality (DEQ) and variances from Grand Haven Township. Steve Eyke helped the Holmes through the long and stressful process until the final permits were received nine months later.

Waltz/Smith Residence-Historic Renovation and Reproduction

This turn of the century home was purchased by two university professors who loved its historic charm and proximity to downtown. LaFollette was hired to renovate and expand the existing property while maintaining its original charm.

Eyke Residence – Historic Reproduction

Originally built in 1870, this four square farm home stood for years as the residence for farming families. After some time the old girl fell into disrepair and suffered from the affects of improper maintenance, neglect and aging materials. The property was purchased in 1990 by the Eyke’s who saw the homes hidden potential. The original exterior had modest detailing typical of the budgets available to most farming families of the time. The homes ten foot ceilings and proximity to local schools and downtown businesses were the only features that saved it from the wrecking ball.

109 Building Downtown Williamston

Redevelopment of a Keystone Building in downtown Williamston, Michigan, in partnership with the City of Williamston, Michigan Economic Development CorporationMichigan State Housing and Development Authority, State Historic Preservation Office and my many partners and friends. Mix use of building to include Tavern 109 as the first floor tenant, and a mixture of affordable housing and market rate rental units. Project goals were to restore the building to its original 1874 design and to provide sustainable and creative occupancies for the buildings interior. Project was the first in the State to combine this level of Public Funding in a rural community. Tavern 109 opened in February of 2012.
