This family cottage was constructed on a 25 acre parcel of raw bush land in the upper Kawartha region on Chandos Lake.
Environmental care and consideration were taken during all aspects of the project.
Although the project did not aim to achieve any LEED certification, its design is environmentally responsible in many ways. The cottage was primarily constructed using materials located on the site. Its walls and floors are timber, milled from mature pine and cedar trees which had been previously cleared for the siting of the cottage.
The cottage has further evolved since its original construction.
This project demonstrates our commitment to environmental sustainability. We believe that all projects, regardless of scale, provide an opportunity to employ sustainable design practices and reduce our environmental footprint. This project also exhibits our
understanding of construction and building technologies involved in residential structures.
