Lake Estate

New Vision for Lodge Living  

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

Land Expressions was brought onto the design team for this 7 acre estate primarily for their expertise in water features, grading and rock work. The site for the 25,000 square foot home on Lake Coeur d’Alene’s water front required extensive grading and excavation. Natural springs throughout the site were to be contained to make building possible. A steep denuded hillside resulted which required extensive retaining and restoration.  The constraints of the difficult site combined with the client’s goals for a mature and natural appearance were well served by the broad skill set of Land Expressions’ design and construction teams. 

Project Details:

  • Extensive grading and drainage to collect underground spring water
  • Over 360 15-40’ Pines and Firs planted with tree spade
  • 48 foot elevation change over the course of the water feature
  • Pumps 1,200 gallons per minute
  • 670 tons of boulders from Montana
  • Project duration of 26 months
