Note from cottage owner:
Drive off the main road, surrounded by crown land and deeper into the forest you enter a granite peninsula containing 2 acres of forest and surrounded on all sides by water; effectively dividing the lake into a smaller deep lake and a larger shallow lake. The built solution called for a cottage that enjoys water, rock, forest, sky, sun and rain. Nestled in the forest and perched overlooking the granite slope into the lake; this cottage provides a different view and experience to be enjoyed from all sides with a cozy centralized space that provides visual enjoyment of the secluded surroundings. The cottage is built on a heated slab on grade providing all the comforts of home with 2 bedrooms on the main floor at one end and the open kitchen on the other end. Additionally, 2 loft spaces look down from the high ceiling above for additional space and a sense of grandeur and airiness. The plan is centralized around family activity in the main space and open to the kitchen. The property is completely off-grid making use of solar panels for electricity and propane for heat. The spine of the building lines up with the length of the peninsula and large dormers are placed on the roof oriented to the solar south to maximize solar gain. Additionally, these dormers allow natural light into the lofted spaces and create an eccentric volume in the roof which translates into some interesting visual effects of space and light.
