Architect Bill Ingram Takes us on a Weekend Getaway
Whether it’s a beach condo, a mountain cabin, or his own hideaway at Lake Martin, Bill Ingram says a second home is designed to leave life’s complications behind.

We asked architect Bill Ingram a few questions to find out what he loves about the R&R lifestyle.
What is your favorite season?
I’m a big summer person. I like all the outdoor activities available in hot weather. My favorite time of day at the lake is hard to pin down, but I would say it might be around 5 o’clock after a full day of boating and swimming.
What’s for dinner?
I’m not a big cook, but I can assemble a meal and work a grill reasonably well. Dinner is probably our favorite meal. We like to cook at home and eat outside at a long table under an iron candelabra. Sometimes we’ll head to SpringHouse Restaurant, where my favorite dish is the roast chicken with summer vegetables. Or we may take a casual boat ride to the grill at Willow Point.
