An Off the shelf kitchen with a tile backsplash and a stained pine ceiling

A new kitchen using off-the-shelf components.

We used standard off-the-shelf components and custom tile work to create a unique, calm and functional space on a tight budget. A stained pine ceiling completed the renovation.

An engineered roof for a 1940’s cottage

The roof of a 1940's cottage was failing, so we came up with a solution that used engineered components to extend its life for another 60 years - and created a cozy loft space in the process.

The existing rafter roof was failing and needed replacing.

A good shot of the new rafters, posts, and beams.

One of 4 engineered supports worked into the existing structure.

The existing walls extended to the new ceiling.

A view of the finished ceiling.

A woodstove to extend the cottage season to spring and fall.

The open roofline created a cozy loft above the kitchen.

Open, solid, functional, ready for another 60 years…

One of several trailers of old roof turned into firewood.

Haliburton Lake Addition

The finished porch blends in with the existing structure nicely while allowing for more living space... and storage space below.

Adding a 14x16 sunroom/porch to and existing cottage to provide more space but to keep the cottage feel that the clients enjoy so much.

Where now there is snow, soon an addition will beging to grow!Latticed flaps allow the air to circulate under the cottage while hinges allow them to be easily lifted to reveal convenient protected storage space.

Haliburton Village Bathroom

Haliburton Village Bathroom: The finished vanity nook is just one custom feature of this practical and value-adding project.

We renovated a bathroom in an older home to provide clean lines, low maintenance and added storage while staying true to the house's character.

Clean lines. The doors on the left allow conceal a large storage closet. With the doors open, there's easy access to lots of storage. A bathroom without adequate storage is as impractical as it is impersonal.

Part way through the process of turning an empty nook into a custom vanity with lots of storage and easy access to the plumbing.A calm colour scheme, moulding and lots of hooks for towels are both practical and easy on the eye.

Kashawigamog Lake Basement

To provide a casual, "close to the waterfront" space for family and friends with plenty of  cabinets, shelves and built-ins for storage.  Everything was built to suit on site.

Preparations for the transformation to come...Comfy curves for a custom nook.Plenty of seating and storage in the mudroom.More custom work for the built-in wall unit.
