Upstairs, a vast recreation room, complete with theater- sized projection screen, arcade games and shuffleboard, provides endless entertainment for young and old alike during the long winter evenings. Whether the family decides to dine indoors or out, large gatherings are easily accommodated either at the farmhouse kitchen table or on the three-season patio overlooking the water. Here a pass-through to the well-equipped butler's pantry provides for easy service, and a remote-operated gas fire pit provides heat on those chilly fall evenings. Come bedtime, family and guests have their enviable choice of sleeping quarters. With the help of friend and designer Kelli Detty, the owners have created uniquely appointed rooms that reflect a whimsical, carefree style. "Kelli has worked on a ton of local projects that are recognized as possessing some of the most interesting decor around," says Tim. "Nothing was out of bounds as Kim and Kelli created the totally unique themed bedrooms." In one room, a bed swings from ropes; in another, the frame is constructed from an actual 1958 truck. Elsewhere, an array of four queen-sized bunk beds has been fashioned by a local craftsman from steel pipes. The master suite, cool and airy, occupies the east end of the building, optionally separated from the rest of the home by a vast and rustic metal door. Sleeping 12 comfortably, this spectacular house conveys a sense that no party is too big. The product of imagination, resources and passion, this magnificent vacation home reflects the full realization of an uncompromising vision, encapsulating the owners' love of family, space and design. sl 75
