THIS LAKESIDE HOME HAS EVERYTHING COVERED
A COZY HOME WITH GREAT VIEWS AND CONVENIENT LAKE ACCESS
The Mirror Point cottage in Nova Scotia, Canada is pretty much the epitome of lakeside cabins. The cabin features a straightforward floor plan with a surprise underneath. One side of the cabin is lined with wide windows and glass walls for a healthy helping of natural light and picturesque views.
Under the elevated cabin is an outdoor kitchen, perfect for barbecues while taking in the fresh air. Since it’s under the cabin, it’s already a spot shaded from the hot sun. This makes it an ideal place for taking in the surrounding and admiring a full 360-degree view of the beautiful environment. The Mirror Point Cabin is the very definition of a summer home.
Mirror Point Cottage is clad in local Eastern white cedar shingles, another nod to the local vernacular. The roof is supported by a series of economical gang-nail trusses, a common enough feature in contemporary North American residential architecture, used to reduce the quantities of structural steel. While the pragmatic wood structural system is typically concealed in houses, at Mirror Point Cottage it is celebrated. The simple structural support system is displayed openly in the interior living space.
