Design Ideas: Open Concept Oasis

For many family members, the idea of a weekend on the lake varies wildly- whether it's curling up with a book, hanging out in the screened room, or hosting a happy hour. With an open concept however, all that matters is that the whole group can pursue their perfect weekend without having to split up.

Impressive Engineering: Outdoor Amenities

As we explored previously, one of the best ways to deal with Lake of the Woods' rugged terrain is by turning your cottage's negatives into positives. With the right mindset, you can use your property's challenging topography to help your cabin stand apart from the rest.

In a previous post we explore the lakeside fire pit as a cost effective way to maximize the use of your cabin's property. One of our builds has taken that concept a step further by using the unique layout of the lot to add some custom, one-of-a-kind amenities.
Wanting a unique, interactive addition to their cabin and seeing some potential in a nearby rocky outcrop, these homeowners killed two birds with one stone, and designed an outdoor pig spit/smoker. Construction is underway- stay tuned for more updates on this out of the box addition!
