Sprucing up a vintage cottage is an investment many canadians see the value in making. That’s in large part because, particularly in this country, the draw and benefits of a natural escape is so deeply rooted in our culture.

However, life in a more rural or natural setting can pose many problems that we don’t encounter or incur living in a suburban or urban environment. Vintage cottage renovations often present layers of complexity that the average DIYer or even construction professionals will not be aware of.

That’s why we’re excited to announce the release of our latest ebook, A Canadian Cottager’s Guide to Vintage Remodelling:Professional advice you need to know before renovating a vintage cottage.

We’ve filled the pages with tips, advice and insights from our design-build professionals that will help you prepare for your next vintage cottage remodelling project.
