"There is a big difference in the feeling of sliding open a window and opening doors. you can feel and hear the lake - bring the outside in. From the outside, the balcony breaks up the vertical wall of the house." - Ralph Mackin explains the 11 foot wide bank of French doors that leads from the master bedroom to a mahogany terrace.

"When it comes to renovations, we try to make it look as if we'd never been there. We can change the total look of the home or enhance what was there in a way that looks organic, which is what we did at [the Lake House]." - Ralph Mackin

“Ralph just got it. He has this awesome sense of taste, space and really understands what our needs were, and that we also wanted to keep the integrity of the house.”

“I’m really finicky about how things work, and I have a strong sense of design – we both do – and Ralph knew how to work with us and to give us everything we wanted, and more than we expected.”
