Summer Cottage

Residential Renovation

This 100 year old summer cottage located in Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada was totally renovated and modernized in 1999. Great care was taken to retain the character and open appeal of the spacious summer home. Exterior materials were chosen for aesthetic value, historic application and to minimize long range maintenance expenses. The addition of an expansive new deck provided the owners with a series of outdoor living experiences that included; screened in porch, covered deck and sun deck options. The new kitchen was constructed in what had previously been a side porch. The original wood floors were refinished and new windows were installed in the entire building. A new driveway was engineered to allow the homeowner's drive-up access to the house.
