Splinter Creek offers large, lakefront homesites with several options for building close to the water or high atop a ridge (photo by Erin Austen Abbott).

Purchasing a Splinter Creek homesite is a fun and thrilling adventure – from figuring out your favorite views to anticipating what long, lazy days by the lake will feel like. But the question we get asked most often after a lot is purchased is, "Where do we start?"

The building process can be overwhelming for some people. Splinter Creek offers a turnkey design option for residents.

What is the design process like, what about a contractor, questions on square footage, site selection, and on. That answer varies greatly from family to family, but we have options to help make the home design and building process as easy and seamless as possible.

For residents looking for a turnkey experience, Splinter Creek offers a license of our East Cove Concept House, designed by Lang Architecture. The base plan for this 2,200-square-foot modern lake house provides the buyer with a complete document of detailed design drawings, specifications, and material choices. Upgrades and various finishes options are available. Once the plans are licensed, they can be easily modified or customized to fit the needs of individual homeowners.

Another option is to work with a reputable prefab company, such as Lindal Cedar Homes. With Lindal, all of the parts of the house are manufactured in the Lindal factory, labeled, and shipped to a Splinter Creek homesite.
