Escape to the cottage along the shores of the St. Lawrence!

Escape to the cottage along the shores of the St. Lawrence!  Take a walk with us, through this stunning and extensive renovation we had the privilege to complete for one of our clients.  This project was a renovation dream, from reorganization of rooms and their functions, all the way to the making interior selections.

From start to finish, interior and exterior, let us walk you through what we were able to do for our client.  Built in the 1970’s this 1800 square foot home underwent a complete transformation.  We moved the small kitchen what was located off to the left of the front entrance, into a larger space that was originally the garage!  The kitchen underwent a huge transformation, going from a small footprint that served its purpose to a grand focal room that is now ready to entertain.

The cabinets showcased below are from the Surewood Plus Collection, selected in Smoke House Grey.  The reflective quality of this finish emulates the shine and beauty that the St. Lawrence River offers.  Our client did a phenomenal job making meticulous selections that captures the natural beauty that surrounds their cottage which is carried throughout the interior.

The addition of the island gives the kitchen a focal point, extra counter space to prepare meals but most importantly adding ample room to pull up stool and entertain with your family and friends.  An entertainment sink was also installed in the island, which also houses the microwave that is tucked underneath to give the island a sleek and uncluttered look.  Working with our kitchen design team the client made an excellent choice by selecting white galaxy granite for both the island and main countertops.

The original smaller room layout of the home was completely removed, and now exhibits an open concept blueprint that takes full advantage of the sunlight that pours in through the floor to ceiling windows.  Giving the owners and their guests a breathtaking birds eye view of the river.

Not only a source of warmth the fireplace adds another depth of beauty to this exquisite sitting area.  The sleek insert lays flush with the large tiles.  A soothing neutral colour, the grand tiles selected in Silver Fox colour makes a substantial yet delicate statement for the fireside.


The owners extended their living space by adding a deck off the dinning area that exposes another view of their natural surroundings.  Selecting tempered glass panels, and pressure treated wood, this stunning spacious area will be enjoyed for years to come.


New stairs were built, completed in a warm wood finish to provide ease to access another area of oasis of this cottage.

Along with the main floor, the basement underwent a complete transformation.  Starting from a partially unfinished, cement floor basement to a welcoming entertainment room, laundry room, bathroom and guest room.  Large French patio doors give ground access to the gardens, backyard and river.  A replica of the fireplace that is on the main level is also in the walkout basement.

The four-piece bathroom spills over with warmth and class.  A floating vanity, tub and shower, finished off with an elegant half glass door.


The bathroom serves as a multipurpose room, having the washer and dryer handy, located off to the side.  At Precision Contracting we left out no detail and taste when deciding on finishing options for the laundry room as well.  We chose floor to ceiling cabinets which are both functional and stylish, as well as a functional counter area.

Reflecting the beauty of the St. Lawrence river throughout this cottage was a true pleasure to work on!  Now our clients have a place to call “home” while they spend time with family and friends.  Do you have a cottage you would like us to transform for you?  Don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.  Our team will walk you through the process making it as easy and rewarding.
