i'm on a real lakehouse kick. it's seems like the perfect locale to celebrate the autumnalness of it all, and i just can't imagine a place much chiller than hanging by a peaceful non-moving water hole.
this before and after in the last country living blew me away. the family bought a 500 square foot crapper, and renovated it into this gem of a hangout. their primary residence is close by, but just far enough that it was a drag to have to pack up everything they needed for a day at the lake each time they wanted to enjoy outdoors. so they purchased the property for a steal, and use it as storage for their toys, and the occasional bunk house when they're having too much fun to make it back to their crib.
