Case Study: Inspired By Nature

Summary of project:

This family cottage sits on a property that used to be a YMCA campground. This couples dream was to build a timber frame cottage but they weren’t sure where to start. But one thing they were sure of; they wanted a warm, spacious and richly textured home that blended seamlessly with the surrounding nature. When they approached Normerica their deadline was tight, and the team worked closely with the homeowners to make it work. These homeowners truly believe that Normerica’s complete shell package system was the key when helping them meet their timeline. 

The design features an open concept Great Room, dining area and kitchen which is perfect for entertaining. Natural exterior finishes and colors allow the building to with the landscape as intended. This resulting cottage is a beautiful family getaway where they are all able to gather and connect with each other.
