Floating House with an Integrated Boathouse and Dock

Located where Georgian Bay meets Lake Huron, this floating house by Michael Meredith of Toronto-based MOS combines country-cottage flair and a wonderful watery appeal for the swimmers, boaters and fishermen out there. This floating house sits on the water among windswept trees and the characteristic, rocky Canadian Shield terrain – not an easy spot to built, but definitely worth the effort. 

This picturesque spot, a 20-minute boat ride from the mainland, provides the perfect backdrop for this island house, which has been described as a “necklace” of buildings strung around the island – a main cottage with an integrated boathouse and dock, and a series of separate cottages to accommodate the many overnight guests that clamber to spend summers here. The timber cottage blends with its surroundings, which appear untouched, providing the perfect getaway. The interior, just 1,250 sq. ft., is also wood-clad – walls, ceilings, floors, and even the bathroom fixtures. See more about this''
