The original island had a wood cabin that was inhabited for the summer months by a family for 100 years from the United States. I kept the wood theme and grandfathered the original setback to build the new main cottage. Blue cedar shingles play with the sky and today travelling is between lakes. The island is in the shape of a bow tie and from the various angles you can’t tell whether is it mainland or island, it is constantly changing and settling in. What remains constant is the view looking out with the endless horizon and sunset.
