The cottage is located on the shores of lake Huron, overlooking the passage between the Island and the Mainland. The design intent was to re-create the cottage architecture of the area in the early part of last century, yet with modern conveniences and functionality.

As the cottage will only be utilised in the Summer months, materials susceptible to degradation over the cold and wet winter months, such as drywall, or plaster were not used. Therefore a palette of natural and painted wood, stone and other like durable materials create a warm and inviting home, yet practically impervious to the elements. Walls are clad externally with stained cedar, both boards and shakes, whilst the inside receives at treatment of wood beaded boards and wainscotting on the walls and a mix of natural and painted wood on the ceilings.

The project was runner-up for a Canadian Woodworks Design prize.
