During the summer of 2016, Osborne construction alongside KMK ventures set forth this beautiful custom built four-season cottage & matching boathouse from drawings to reality for the clients.

The beautiful lake-front lot required blasting of the natural granite and further excavation of the rock material and surrounding trees in order to begin the foundational work.

You will notice in the early stages of building, LOGIX Insulated Concrete Forms were used to build the walk-out basement.

From the minute the granite was blasted and excavated Osborne Construction was here to help KMK Ventures build this cottage from the ground up. From the Insulated Concrete Forms to the Hardie shakes and copper accents, no details were overlooked. The walkout basement will lead the homeowners right out to their boathouse overlooking beautiful Lake Of The Woods.

Lacking years of upkeep and maintenance this 1950s house was in need of some serious TLC. Osborne Construction was called upon to bring this house up to its full potential while staying within the desired budget by the home owner.

Before the cosmetic updating commenced, Osborne Construction made a number of structural changes to improve the look and functionality of the house, some of these included; opening up a wall between the kitchen and living room improving which helped to improve the amount natural light reaching the kitchen while also creating a perfect spot for a breakfast island. A key additional structural improvement to the property included the increased ceiling height and changing the roof line to enable the upstairs bathroom to have a full height shower  as well as replacing rotten floor joists caused by a leaking bathtub.

Once the structural aspects were complete, Osborne Construction was able to proceed with completing the cosmetic improvements of the property that make it modern, functional, and desirable to live in. Cosmetics included extending the roof overhang, soffits and fascia, siding, windows & doors, flooring, baseboards & casing, counter tops, and lastly installing frost walls in the basement.

As a sub trade for KMK Ventures, Osborne Construction had the opportunity to be apart of this addition/renovation.  The old wrap around deck was removed and the right and left wings were extended, adding 2 bedrooms and extending both master bedroom and kitchen. The timber frame porch maintains the cottage feel while the siding, soffits and fascia give the cottage a modern look.
