The construction of a large reservoir in any community necessitates changes within that community. Frequently one of these resulting changes is the construction of lake front homes. The development of lake front homes is the main thrust or problem of this study. Hopefully, this study will allow fuller understanding of lake home developments. The study will try to answer the following questions to promote more complete understanding of lake-side housing as one component of the overall settlement fabric... Through careful observation, the use of a questionnaire, and personal interviews and contacts answers to the above questions hopefully will be found. The results should provide more complegte knowledge of lake front home developments.
