Cottage ‘n’ Country Consulting..
Helping create lakeside comfort!…on beautiful Aylen lake!, and Beyond!
Living, & Building lakeside, has educated me to know, there are many differences, to ‘cottage- country’ construction vs. the more ‘urban’ methods. Firstly, the varying terrain of ‘lakeside living’ itself, can be the largest factor for determining site location, design, & construction methods.
Then, other factors too: like snow loading, frost lines(penetrations), exposures, and the building codes, are to be factored into the design.
Plus, there are other factors like forest canopies, lake-ice jamming, frost quakes, wind currents, shoreline erosion, soil conditions, and landscape, should all be considered, when selecting your Rural or Lakeside plan.
Is the property going to be a home (fulltime), cottage (partime), a retirement home, or an investment property. These too, will affect the design, and land use of the property area. Customization, is the norm in cottage country, where the landscape dictates; that no 2 projects are the same.
Plus, land use ideas like hobby farms, for fruit stands, artisans, and marketers, are of interest to some. Maybe, an orchard? a vineyard? or a rental retreat? is in your future. The opportunities abound!
