    Ready, Set, Demo! (Guest Room)

    Colin and Justin move into their cottage and meet with their contractor Dan to get this reno started! Dan’s plan? Start on the 2nd floor, then tackle the basement, and meet in the middle to tackle the Kitchen and Great Room. Everything has to be in keeping with his tight schedule if they’re to finish on time and on budget. The first room they’ll take on is the dated and dowdy 2nd floor guest room. Colin and Justin reckon they can take this on themselves and, when it’s finished, have a clean and comfortable place to sleep while they live in the construction zone.

    Cherri and David are trusting Colin and Justin to work their design magic throughout the cottage. But when it comes to the spaces that will be specifically for Cherri and David, the boys are feeling a little more pressure. And to start, this bathroom needs a glamorous, spa-like transformation. Smashing tile, sanding floors, peeling wallpaper are all quite satisfying but if the boys don’t wow Cherri and David with their idea of a spectacular makeover of their master bathroom, how will their co-owners feel about the rest of the reno?

    The Best Laid Plans … (Muskoka Room)

    The Muskoka Room was one of the biggest selling features of the cottage. It’s a bright, open-feeling space off the lower level that really is all about bringing the outdoors, indoors. With a brilliant view to the lake, this is just the place you want to be comfortable to relax and take in the beauty of the natural surroundings. Sounds good in theory, but the room itself is a bit of a pit. That said, the boys plan to do a quick, easy makeover … paint the floor, bring in stylish new furnishings and voila, it’s become a lovely comfortable space. But when you find out that the ceiling is about to collapse?!?! Coming up with a new plan would be easy with limitless resources, but Colin and Justin start to wonder if they’re in over their heads.

    From Bleak to Chic: Colin & Justin’s Ensuite Bathroom

    Changing the layout of the basement allows for a larger bathroom that Colin and Justin have made ensuite to their new bedroom. With the old bathroom gone, the mould and mice dealt with, it’s time to think ‘style’ for their very own space. Colin is inspired by a photograph he took of a bomb shelter, Justin isn’t feeling it. They agree that as their own client they can experiment and take risks they wouldn’t for someone else. But Justin remains unconvinced that Colin’s ‘bleak chic’ design is something they’ll be happy with. Colin is so sure that ‘bleak chic’ is the way to go that he’s going to carry on, and prove to Justin that they’ll both love it when it’s done. And if not, at least they’ll be ready if they need a bunker!
