Black Sturgeon Cottage | Nov 2

Words by: Xuan He  |  Photos by: Pauline Boldt

Ten minutes north of Kenora, Ontario, a lovely blue-grey cottage stands among the deep green canopies of spruce and elegant white barks of paper birch. Completed in 2013, the cottage sits on Black Sturgeon Lake with a wide open deck and stairs that lead to its own dock on the water.

The cottage was constructed as a holiday home for all seasons. With heating system installed, it could be occupied all year round. It is mainly used by the owner and occasionally rented out as well. To create that relaxing and homey atmosphere, Woodland Supply’s products are used throughout the interior of the cottage.

The entire main level is installed with rustic white oak hard wood flooring. Rustic grade planks are full of knots, patterns and variations that give the space a very intimate and natural look.

“The interior ceiling features rough sawn knotty pine. The material is very durable as it shrinks and expands without cracking in a climate where temperature and humidity fluctuate in extremes as the seasons change.”

The cottage uses both the standard millwork products such as doors, moulding and air registers, and more custom products like counter tops that give the space unique character.

This countertop for the kitchen island is made of solid maple, customized for the specific dimensions of the sink. Over by the window, the countertop where the square sink sits is made of stained white oak.

The furnishing of the cottage gives great attention to detail, the hot air register is made to match the colour and natural looks of the rustic white oak floor so that it blends with its surrounding. These Woodland products, are all made from natural hardwood and give off no harmful gas.

For a cottage that is used for holidays and relaxation, wood is the perfect material as it brings a warmth to the space through its natural texture, colour and smell that no other building material can substitute.
