Do You Have A Construction Project We Can Help With?

Lakeside Homes and Boat Houses

Whether you’re looking for a home on the private north shores of Lake Huron, the north channel or on one of the many incredible inland lakes this region has to offer, call us first.

We have experience in building lakeside homes and hideaways for those who love waterfront life, whether as a family home or seasonal vacation property. If you want your own special place in northern Ontario cottage country, read on!

Planning your new lakeside home

Lakeside home construction involves careful planning to ensure your new home makes the most of its position, views and elevation. It needs to blend into the wooded wilderness surroundings, yet be open to bask in the bright skies of summer. It should have low impact on the local environment, yet also have the capability to withstand the extremes of temperature and weather conditions. Your new home needs to have water, power, light and heat, even when direct supply utilities may not be available (or be reliable in winter).

Inspired? Whether you’re looking for a traditional style cottage or a contemporary year-around eco home, we can make it happen. Call Josh and Chris to discuss your dream lakeside home, even if you haven’t found a lot yet!

Dating from 1668, Sault Ste. Marie is one of the oldest French settlements in Canada, and an important fishing ground for the Ojibwe, our indigenous Anishinaabe inhabitants. No wonder our picturesque area is rich in lakeside heritage properties, and more modern mid 20th century cottages build by local families as summer retreats. Many are ripe for renovation, restoration and upgrading to sustainable, eco-friendly homes for the future. For more details, see:

Dock, decks and breakwalls

Imagine soaking up the summer sun on an elegant, robust floating dock or deck. Or gently strolling down to your own lakefront area via shore access steps and staircases.  We offer clever solutions to avoiding damage by winter ice, reducing the need for endless repair and maintenance routines through the smart use of local materials and traditional techniques.

We also partner with specialist local companies to advise on steel pile jetties and boulder shore protection methods to retain the beachfront and protect the shoreline from erosion.

“It’s not only the BEAUTY of a building you should look at; It’s the FOUNDATION that will stand the test of time.
