Lake House Architects Wisconsin

We Create Custom Designs For Lake Houses & Cabins

Live By Design offers custom lake house and cabin designs throughout the Wisconsin and northern Illinois area. When we design a floor plan for your new lake house, we will work strategically around your specific lot to ensure that the natural surroundings work harmoniously with the architecture of the home. Whether you're looking to build a lake house or a cabin, choosing to work with Live By Design means that you and your family will get quality architecture that lasts for generations!

Design The Perfect Lake House For Your Family

Our lake house design services offer a wide range of innovative and creative designs to help you build the perfect home for your family. With over 15 years of experience designing custom lake houses, modern homes, cabins, and more, our architects do much more than just draft a basic floor plan. Instead, they’ll take into account the specific lot and the surrounding landscape and will use that in a way that will complement the design of the home.


Another thing to consider when building a lake house is the natural elements that can affect your house over time. This may be related to building on lake sediment or finding the right materials that can withstand the tough winter months. The Live By Design architects have built homes in many different areas using a variety of different materials, so we know what to use in certain environments. Our architects will make sure to design your home so that it is usable year-round, regardless of the weather!

"Mike, was nothing short of amazing to work with for the design of our new lake home. We came to him with our list of must haves and wishes, and he created a beautiful and efficient house plan and really maximized the square footage for us. He thought of and recommended so many details that we otherwise wouldn't have thought about. (I'm thrilled about the extra storage spaces!) He was EXTREMELY patient with me as I am very particular. He's such a great guy all around and very trustworthy. We came to him late in the game, and added a Mother in Law suite on to the home as well. He knocked it out of the park there too. Early on, we even looked at a possible lake home renovation, vs. knocking our existing home down for a new build, and again, he had fantastic design ideas and was extremely knowledgeable about the house remodel process. Thanks for everything, Mike! Can't wait for our house plans come life!" - Trish A.
