“Work for the good of your character, do your character. Don’t worry, the script will take care of itself.”

“Before you start obeying rules, start by breaking them. I made ‘The Deer Hunter’ as a young man. If I had gone through a film school before making this movie, I would never have made it. I would have been too afraid. Even today, the script girls say to me, ‘Michael, this is not going to work. You’re crossing the eye line.’ I still don’t know what the ‘eye line’ means!”

— Michael Cimino, from Battling the Past: an encounter with Michael Cimino

"The Lake House" was constructed in 2005 at Maple Lake near Chicago expressly for the movie with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reaves. (some pictures here)  Architect Nathan Crowley collaborated with engineers McDonough Associatesand veteran Chicago construction coordinator Troy Osman. 
Crowley took the 2,000 square foot structure from sketches to completion in just ten weeks: 2 weeks design and documentation, 4 days bidding, and a scant seven weeks for actual construction. 35 tons of steel and a crew of nearly one hundred was required to finish the house by the time filming was scheduled to begin.  The house was actually constructed on dry land next to the lake, atop steel beams that rose 10 feet above the waterline, which was created by excavating nearly 1200 cubic feet of soil and letting lake waters flood in under the pilings.
It was destroyed after filming. :-(
