Scott McGillivray Updates a Tired Cottage Retreat Into a Groovy Tech Getaway

When Christine and Sam purchased their Prince Edward County retreat, they were looking for a place to work remotely where the kids could also run around and get some fresh air. They were also hoping to recoup some of their costs in rental income, but with a hazardous entrance, a questionable layout, and a lack of rentable space, they needed help. Luckily Scott McGillivray, designer Debra Salmoni, and the Scott’s Vacation House Rules team were there to complete a rental redesign: one where remote-working professionals can come to hit the daily grind and to unwind. By updating the layout, adding more space, and creating an outdoor oasis, Scott transformed this rental into a retro-themed, high-tech property.

Scott’s Vacation House Rules airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV Canada. It is also available on the new Global TV App, and on STACKTV with Amazon Prime Video Channels. HGTV Canada is available through all major TV service providers.
