Melissa Lott, owner of a graphic design firm in Chicago, purchased the Knox House in her hometown of Kilmichael in the early 1990’s. She planned to restore the historic house over time, adding other structures as needed to accommodate her large extended family when they visit. Architectural Services have included the restoration of the original house, addition of restrooms, development of a rear sun porch and large accessible deck areas with a pergola – as well as planning for the development of the current attic for future growth potential. A nearby house was purchased and moved onto the site for additional living suites. Planning has been provided for additional site development including a dance pavilion, additional cottage suites and additional site development.
