A beautiful Colby Construction custom lake home on one of the most pristine lakes of southeastern Wisconsin was ready for a lower level remodel and custom wine cellar. The house was built 16 years ago for a young family with three little boys. The lot was perfect for them, with a sprawling driveway lot and a flat lakeside lawn. Colby Construction built the family’s dream home, giving them the layout and space perfect for their family. Time passed, and the boys grew into men and left home, so it was time to update the lower level from a rec room for kids and teenagers into an adult haven.

A Custom Wine Cellar and Lower Level Refresh

Colby Construction helped them redesign and make the space a perfect location for entertaining friends and family. Naming the bar after their favorite beer, Eagle Park was created. The room was opened up, and a one-of-a-kind wine cellar is now the central focus of the new space: glass walls and stone pillars greet you as you come down the staircase. The temperature-controlled room features a storage area for bottles of wine, glassware, and storage. A built-in beer tap keeps their favorite keg on tap for those who prefer it over the wine filling the cellar.

The wine cellar, large enough to hold tastings and gatherings, is adjacent to the new bar room. Unlike a traditional bar, this area features a large center island with seating around it. The island houses an under-counter beverage center for beer, soda, and water and an under-counter microwave. A wet bar, dishwasher, open shelving, and lit cabinets round out the warm and inviting space. It’s perfect for everything from wine tastings to Packer parties!

With the area’s renovation, the remaining parts of the lower level needed refreshing, too. The Colby team replaced the carpeting with beautiful hardwood floors and updated the built-in cabinets, giving the space a brand-new look.

The timing was also perfect to update the master suite. This included a brand-new master bath with a walk-in shower, a soaking tub, light fixtures, and mirrors. The powder room was given a fresh look with new fixtures as well. The owners were thrilled to have Colby Construction back to bring some modern touches to their home as well as make it more useable for their empty nester lifestyle!
