Lake Huron Cottage

This long-neglected cottage from the early 1900's was given a new life when the new owners purchased it.  

The sunroom was turned into a kitchen and dining area

Transformation to a Modern kitchen

This beautiful and serene modern kitchen was transformed from the image below.  The owner's wanted the exterior to stay intact as part of the remodel.  The large island houses pot and pan storage, beverage coolers, produce cooler, prep sink and a pop up outlet for appliances.



Microwave drawer frees up counter space

Beverage and wine coolers situated conveniently for entertaining.  Two dishwashers help clean up faster after parties

Storage designed so it is open and doors out of the way when cooking.  Closing the hidden pantry doors and garage keeps appliances and supplies out of sight the rest of the time

built in coffee station located to greet you on the way from the dining and master bedroom wing.  Additional grill provides a more intimate area for owner's Asian speciality dishes to be enjoyed by family

Remodel continues into the adjacent family area with re-styled fireplace, seating and desk area

Before of the area-traditional and not what the owner's desired

Under counter produce cooler provides a convenient place for the "sous chef" to work and keep out of the chef's way! 

A well-organized Respite

Outdated, difficult to use and lack of storage created a uncomfortable situation for the owners

The new view-a great way to start your day.  Pullout shelves and organized drawers give the owners ample storage and allow it to easily stay composed


A Japanese soaking tub and a large open feeling shower are functional and beautiful.  Shower shelving is on the back side of the narrow tile wall.

Large bulky storage needs behind the deep closet doors

Expansive towards the master bedroom and accompanying fireplace and porch

Super Organized and Effortless for the owner to keep up.  This narrow space is well lit and uses every square inch.  A large packing and charging station at the end keeps travel easy

Industrial Redux

Before-A testing facility for suzuki, the building and barbed fence cut the property off from the edging neighborhood

Sections of the structure were removed to create a public walkway through the site and add light to the interior spaces.  Reducing the size of the structure a little created better living units to yield higher rents
