A four season log cottage build on a waterfront property was a dream come true for this family. Floor plans were scrutinized, then adjusted until the perfect layout was achieved…. small entry hall/mud room/laundry room, four bedrooms, two small bathrooms, kitchen, great room, loft and screened porch.
Excavation was completed and the foundation was poured for a full walkout basement. Logs were custom milled and drilled, brought on site and erected within 3 days. The roof and windows were then installed. Custom stair spindles and handrail for the loft were designed, the fireplace and faux stone surround were built and barn board was sourced to cover support posts and beams. Finally reclaimed pine was milled into floor boards for the entire cottage. The kitchen was custom designed to include a combination of med and black stained cabinetry, open shelves and black quartz and natural butcher block counters. Although the exterior logs need to be stained occasionally, this cottage is essentially maintenance free.
The specifications for the interior decor of the cottage … No fuss, no muss, keep it simple, and comfy. There are only a few closets and multiple wall hooks keep hangables off the floor. This cottage is filled with hand me down chairs and tables, a reused sofa and chair covered in washable white denim, interchangeable seasonal toss cushions, mismatched antique dining chairs, antique dressers, and re-repainted wicker furniture. Each bedroom is colour coded and decorated for easy identification. Nothing is precious in this cottage and everything in it has been designed or sourced to serve a purpose.
