Who doesn’t love a weekend away at the cottage? For most people, the cottage is a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city and a chance to unplug from the routine of daily life.

Why You Should Consider Cottage Renovation

There are many reasons why cottage owners may consider renovating their property. Older homes and cottages certainly have unique charm but are not always comfortable. Your cottage may feel old, cramped and drafty, or it may have some structural damage or an unsafe system that needs to be replaced or repaired. 

A cottage renovation can help increase living space, improve energy efficiency and improve the overall layout to suit your needs. 

At Grand Design Build, we understand your cottage should be a cherished retreat. We’re here to help you transform it into a space you and your family will love. From initial designs and arranging permits to construction and final clean-up, our team will guide you through every step of your renovation to make the process as seamless and stress-free as possible.

Our Cottage Renovation Process

On-Site Inspection

At Grand Design Build, every cottage renovation project begins with a thorough consultation and property inspection. 

Our in-house engineers will take measurements and ask you detailed questions to better understand your preferences and vision for your cottage before creating a preliminary design plan.

Drawings and Design

Next, our team of architects and designers will collaborate to develop a custom renovation plan that incorporates your goals and vision. You will also have the chance to review and provide feedback on the floor plans and layout options.

Construction by Contractors

Once you approve the proposed floor plan and design, our expert contractors will work on renovating your cottage. They will keep your specifications in mind and follow established building standards and methods to construct your dream vacation home. 

Your appointed project supervisor will also consult you for every major construction decision so that you stay up-to-date and are involved in every step of the process.

Inspection and Handover

After construction is complete, we will conduct a final inspection to ensure that the cottage meets all your necessary requirements and personal specifications. Once everything checks out, the newly renovated cottage is all yours to enjoy.

Cottage Renovation in the GTA: What to Consider

When it comes to updating your cottage, deciding between a small-scale remodel or a large-scale rebuild is a key consideration. To make the best choice for your needs, there are a few factors to consider. 

These include the current condition of your cottage, your renovation budget, and how long you plan to keep the property. 

If there are a number of major issues that need to be addressed or if you see yourself enjoying your cottage for the long term, then tearing down and rebuilding might be a better path than doing a large-scale renovation. On the other hand, if reselling is possible in the foreseeable future or if your budget is comparatively small, then a renovation is the way to go. 

Whether you’re looking for a modest refresh or a complete overhaul, always ensure that all necessary permits are secured, and by-law conditions are met before any work begins. Working with a trusted renovation company like Grand Design Build will ensure everything is to avoid unnecessary roadblocks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What renovations should I consider before I sell my cottage?

We always recommend that our clients choose renovations based on their needs and preferences. However, not all upgrades are created equal, and some may appear to potential buyers more than others if you intend to sell your cottage in the near future.

Our project consultants will discuss what is best for your cottage in our initial consultation to make sure that your renovation project will help you reach your goal and vision for the property.

How long will the renovation process take?

The timeline for a home remodelling project can be affected by many different factors. Typically, an isolated room renovation takes 3-12 weeks to complete, while a major remodel can take 13 months or even longer.

Can I finance a Cottage Renovation Project?

Yes. We offer financing options and have connections to other financial institutions if you need further assistance.
