Your Cottage And Home In One

Cottage-life designs are chosen to compliment interaction rather than simply making an impression. What does the word “cottage” mean to you? For many it’s about memories of gatherings the feeling of simplicity. Cottages mean connectedness with nature and people, and the joy of being free of the demands of suburban and urban life. So, why not have a cottage-style home? At Land Ark homes we have been studying simplicity and cottage style design. You can see our cottage style in our floor plans and exterior colour palettes. We want our homes to bring the warmth and comfort of cottage life all year round.We want your input on designs. We would like to share as many of your ideas with our team as possible. Send them our way! But are designs and appearances enough? Absolutely not! The right design in the wrong location can be a homeowners disaster. At Watercolour Westport you we have secured a premier location that offers our cottage-style homeowners the year round comforts of home with access to all that a waterfront village has to offer. Harbour slips, walk to the beach, stroll into the village shops and don’t forget to pick up your favourite wine at the local winery. Choosing to live in Watercolour Westport your home will be the destination for gatherings and a place for you to escape urban density and live in cottage country with welcoming front porches and backyard screened porches to recline in. Simplicity comes in two forms when you move to Watercolour Westport. First, your home is built to future construction standards and we are exceeding specifications in many ways. Being Net Zero Ready is one huge step, but let’s not overlook the superior quality of materials like Hardie Board siding that has a lifespan of over 150 years, and triple pane windows that will reduce the solar heat gain and loss in the house. Hardwood floors are a standard finish on the main floor and so are quartz kitchen counter tops. It’s much simpler to own a home that is well constructed and built with quality materials. Second, combining a home and cottage into one property is a recipe to reduce hurry and enjoy simplicity. Hurry is harmful to our health and in order to regain control of our well being it is essential to reduce the hurry in our lives. One of our inspirations comes from a book, The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry. Here’s a quote we think sums up the home + cottage = Simplicity 
“The solution to an overbusy life is not more time. It’s to slow down and simplify our lives around what really matters.”
Most agree, maintaining two properties contributes to hurry. Rushing through traffic, stocking multiple kitchens, cutting two lawns, repairing the endless little things that keep breaking down… rarely enjoy either location much, when you’re always thinking about “getting back home” and “getting to the cottage”…..Do you ever arrive?

Simplify, simplify, simplify.
