Beach Drive Custom HomeWhen we think of the 4th of July, we think of family and friends gathering together to celebrate the birth of our country. Fireworks over the lake, reflecting in the water, barbecues, parades and parties are all part of the festivities.

Celebrating the 4th of July at a Custom Lake Home

Building a custom home on one of pristine lakes in southeastern Wisconsin brings the opportunity to enjoy all of the amenities that go with lake living. The 4th of July is the perfect time in the summer to gather friends and family for a celebration. Colby Construction’s custom build lake homes are designed for entertaining and thoughtfully laid out for extra space for your guest, which means that celebrating the 4th of July at a custom lake home is a fun, memory-making experience.

The day can be celebrated on the lake, boating and enjoying water fun with food and beverages. End the evening by looking up to the skies and viewing a spectacular fireworks display reflecting over the water.

A few tips to have a fun and safe 4th of July:

  • Lake activities means lots of time in the sun, so be sure to load up on sunscreen for your family and your guest.

    Stay hydrated, as spending time in the sun and being active will dehydrate you. Be sure to have lots of water, lemonade and juice available for your guests.

  • Review your boater safety and lake boater rules. The 4th of July means lots of people are playing on the lake.
  • Be sure to check for ticks on yourself and family members after spending the day outdoors.
  • If you are going to have sparklers or other fireworks, be sure an adult is supervising children at all times.
