Wild Rose Bunkie
The historic Wild Rose Cottage is located on one of Pointe au Baril’s outer Georgian Bay islands. ERA led the refurbishment of the original cottage and the design of a new “bunkie.” The bunkie components were composed with prefabricated panels which were transported to and assembled on the island. The custom design incorporates two bedrooms, a lounge, a pantry, and a bathroom within an efficient 540 square feet. The interior, which is bathed in lake light and wonderful views thanks to daylighting techniques like a clerestory and walls of expansive windows, is finished with a combination of new and salvaged woods. The exterior is clad in hardy and rustic wood siding and shingles to withstand the hurricane-force winds of the location.
