This 1960's/1970's cottage was in need of an update. With renovations, we can be faced with several challenges especially the more we get into it and tear it apart. The whole kitchen side was tore down and reframed on this cottage and once we got into the second storey, it lead us to redoing nearly the entire cottage framing to finish. Walls were removed, forming an open concept kitchen, dining and great room with cathedral ceilings. The interior incorporated lots of wood trim, ceilings, flooring and exposed beams, creating a warm, cottage feel. New windows were added and installed, creating lake views from every room on the lakeside. The great room fireplace was preserved, refacing it to match the exterior stone. The exterior bold entry was added in post and beam and dormers were added throughout the design. The detail and combination of wood siding, wood shakes and natural stone provide this new cottage with a defined look that is sure to be noticed from the lake. This is definitely one of our favourites!
