Cottage Project


The owners of this cottage are teachers who subdivided the family cottage lot. The owners wanted a traditional, cozy but functional space to relax and spend their summers with family and friends. The cottage is set on a point of land and had many set back restrictions. The design resulted in a unique layout and features an all wood interior, a stone fireplace and reclaimed wood floors.


“It was a great pleasure working with James on the cottage and boathouse. He could think outside the box in developing a property with challenging topography, creating spectacular panoramic views. He is very creative and produced awesome cottage and boathouse designs which accommodated both my wife’s more modern taste and my traditional taste.
