This vacation house is more than just a rectangle with a shed roof. For only $125 a square foot, Gene and Sharon DeSmidt built this 825-sq. ft. home away from home using plywood siding and two-foot spacing tricks to cut down on lumber costs. One peek through the ten foot wide accordion entry way, however, proves that style was no sacrifice. Additionally, after a steady influx of weekend guests, the couple decided to add two stylized 8-ft. by 12-ft. cabanas on a concrete bulkhead overlooking the lake.
