Frequently Asked Questions
What is Waterfront Planning?
Various zoning is in place that allows shore land residences to maintain, upkeep, improve, expand, and rebuild. Our planning process takes a detailed depiction of your property and structures, to provide a maximum building envelope in which Lakeside can help you design your expansions, and/or rebuilds. With this information in hand we help with drafting and design of the proposed structure, as well as detailing structural framing or unique framing considerations. Lakeside works with our clients to provide detailed specifics on various materials and developing accurate allowances for use in accurate pricing details. This process provides our clients with a “road map” from their initial thoughts through a well thought out and complete project plan.
Lakeside Construction has spent the last decade working with various regulatory authorities to help our clients navigate these regulations and not only make sure that all options are researched, but to be good stewards of this abundant beauty we have available to us in our state.

What is an “Allowance”?
Often when helping our clients determine overall budgeting considerations, we use “allowances” as approximate depictions of what would be a realistic amount to be spent in that category. For example, it’s very difficult to select every light fixture, sink, and faucet, tile, etc. when the project is still only on paper.
Lakeside uses a price range incorporated into the initial budget that’s representative of what similar size and style homes have used in the past. It’s important to have detailed discussions during this time to make these as accurate as possible. Once the home is under construction the client can then better visualize the space and make specific selections for these various items.
As the allowance is an approximation, once the actual materials are selected the pricing is reviewed and considered against the allowance that was provided.
