An award winning cottage for 2013 Kawartha Awards of Distinction for "Best Kitchen Renovation" and PKHBA Housing Design Awards 2015 for "Home Renovations $75,001-$200,000" for the basement renovation. This cottage was renovated in several stages, beginning with adding a hot tub living area with a sunken hot tub and an outdoor shower. The next stage was re-shingling the roof and adding a skylights. At this stage, we also renovated the bathrooms with heated tile floors, one including a steam room. The third stage was the entrance and main floor renovation. The heated tile entry was added providing more space when you walk in, greeted with a bold post and beam covered entrance with stone columns. The main floor was renovated to open concept, insulation was brought up to code, cathedral ceilings and bedroom ceilings were redone with pickled pine, a new award winning Aya Kitchen was installed, a beautiful propane fireplace and skylights were added, new flooring throughout the main floor, wood doors, trim and much more. Leading us to the last stage (as of now) for this beautiful cottage is the award winning basement renovation. The basement was outdated with aged carpet, pine wainscoting and pine ceilings in the great room. We removed the post in the middle of the great room and added a steel beam to create more usable space. Plenty of custom built-in Aya shelving and cupboards were installed on either side of the fireplace, closet and great room. We eliminated the long dark hallway to the bedrooms by moving the entrance to the center of the hall, opening with sliding barn board doors made in our own wood working shop. Nearly everything was updated including insulating, electrical and new lighting fixtures. These renovations have made this cottage look modernized and gives it a breath of fresh air! Now what's the next stage?
