Surrounded by a naturally wooded lot on Buckshot Lake, the Cottage is uniquely located on a peninsula, allowing the owners to enjoy a view of the lake from three sides. The prominent use of natural stone and exposed wood, both inside and out, has provided a casual yet elegant look that is typical of so many of Jim Bell’s homes.
“Thanks Jim for guiding us through creating our perfect personal paradise in the forest. After living here for 7 years, we have not found one thing we would change about the design.” Lee and Greg, homeowners
