Built on the solid Cambrian Shield, this cottage on Georgian Bay is where family gathers from distant places. On my first visit to the property with the owner, I learned that the previous owners ran a fishing camp. The main building’s foundations had been laid directly on the granite rock and over many decades the structure had been added to – it was a maze of rooms and multiple levels. The old cottage was demolished to the main floor. Designing carefully we worked within the strict zoning guidelines for size and height to create open concept living areas, plus four bedrooms and a new garage. With quarried stone and wood inside and out, the cottage blends seamlessly into the surrounding landscape.
