Deda’s Cottage

This Pointe au Baril Island cottage has been in the same family since its construction in 1923. The owners were keen to install an off-grid solar electrical system and improving comfort while preserving the original cottage character and its beloved features. A new addition follows the material palette and architectural format of the original building, while providing a brighter and well-insulated zone for use in the cooler seasons.

The addition houses a wood stove, enlarged kitchen, dining area, bathroom, and bedroom, meshed seamlessly with the existing cottage. The drop-down windows in the new dining room transform it effortlessly from an enclosed space to an open-air screened porch. A large raised deck on the front of the building captures long views toward the open water of Georgian Bay.
