“Kawartha Lakes Construction was part of the family for the past year. They will be remembered as an organized, efficient, approachable and highly skilled team. We would definitely use them again for any future project. We cannot recommend KLC highly enough.”

-Trevor & Julie Harterre

Building a brand new cottage for a young family is an extremely gratifying experience. Our team was able to showcase our strong project planning and design skills while knowing that we were creating a space where a family would be building memories for years to come.  This extremely challenging project purposely avoided conventional foundations through the use of a steel sub-frame to allow for direct attachment to the side of a cliff. All materials were brought across a frozen lake and up the side of a cliff with the aid of a marine railway. Despite its remote location this cottage was fully insulated and treated as a 4-season home. Due to the sheer cliff on site, the floor plan was stepped up into a split-level format allowing access to the top of the cliff through the rear of the upper-level.
