Building A Cottage Against The Clock

Summer is in full swing, and that means a lot of prospective buyers who want to be on the lake ASAP. With the right builder however, your dream of lounging on the lake may not be as distant as it seems.

If your wish is to be on the lake as quickly as possible, the most natural assumption might be to buy a preexisting cabin. If building a dream cottage to your exact specifications is part of your plan however, you still have options where you can have your cake and eat it too.

One recent example came when a client purchased a lot on the Winnipeg River just days before the Victoria Day Weekend. Our goal was to get them onto their lot as quickly and as comfortably as possible. Lo and behold, by July 8th and with a lot of help and enthusiasm from the owners themselves, the lot was ready to go with a fresh lane and septic.

Not only that, but we managed to install a deck and dock so that our clients could fully take hold of their first summer on the water. Now the homeowners are able to enjoy their property while the rest of their cottage build moves forward.
