Sarah’s Cottage – Bunkie

Completion 2009
Location Umbrella Islands, Georgian Bay

This bunkie created for top designer, Sarah Richardson, was featured on HGTV’s “Sarah’s Cottage”.

Canada’s favourite interior designer renovated and built additions around an existing cottage on a lakefront property in the Muskoka region. In addition, the cottage received a green renovation as sustainable design practices and solar panel systems were integrated into the overall design.

The bunkie was designed as an out building to increase flexibility when entertaining at the larger cottage. The bunkie attracted significant enthusiasm from viewers as a cost-effective approach to satisfy the needs of expanding families or to accommodate overnight guests. Sarah’s impeccable interior design sense allowed this tiny bunkie to establish its own presence amidst the design of the larger cottage and the entire lakefront property.
