Chimney Point Summer Home

Yet another project from the hands of designer Stacey Keaney, this Candlewood Lake Summer Home was reborn from a cold, dark, closed-in shack to a warm, bright, open summer cottage.

Set in a private community on the shores of Candlewood Lake in Connecticut’s Litchfield Hills, deed restrictions limit construction to be done only in certain months – to protect the enjoyment of other residents.

Having completed another project the year before, construction kicked off in late February with a June 30th “Drop Dead” completion date circled on the calendar.

Working hand in hand with the owners and the designer, decisions were made quickly and obstacles were overcome to produce a finished product that speaks for itself.  Before & after pictures show the dramatic change!


“It has been an absolute delight working with Chris Haggerty of Oak Street Design and Construction.  At our initial designing meeting Chris exuded an honest, down-to-earth hard-working professionalism about himself that both my husband and I found comforting and we hired him to do our remodel project.  We live over two hours away and needed to find someone who we could depend upon and trust would always do the right thing on our behalf…and Chris never let us down.  He maintained his integrity throughout the course of our project and was honest and forthright about any issues that would arise and what he thought the best course of action would be to rectify the situation.  Chris needed to complete our renovation within an extremely tight time frame and was able to finish the job within a few days of the due-date.  Chris also did a great job of letting us know where we were to the budget…percent completed vs. not…something I haven’t heard of too many builders delivering to their customers.  My husband and I went from being complete strangers with Chris to now we consider him a good friend.  We both highly recommend Chris for any building project, large or small, tight budget or tight time frame that you may have…he is a builder you can believe that will deliver to you a nicely built, on-budget, and on-time finished product! ”   KH
