You’d have to be an absolute loon not to watch!
Originally a bachelor shack on a tiny island, this cottage is now in a family way. Sarah’s husband purchased the place a number of years ago and has since kept it as off the grid as possible. A combination of solar, wind and propane made it work for them as a couple. Now with one child and another on the way this place has got to grow up yet hold true to its original mission statement. It’s got to be rustic, relaxing and at one with the stunning scenery in which it is enveloped.
Sarah makes the most sense of this tiny place’s attributes. Guest rooms, bathrooms and a kids’ loft exude a smart, relaxed and casual air. Character, storage and versatility extend to a combined kitchen, dining room and lounge, which reveals to an outdoor room for summer sunsets and storms as they roll across the lake. Last but not least on the list is the quintessential bunkie. It’s all there, with style and dollars to spare!
