The Okanagan Valley has long been one of the premier vacation/recreation destinations in British Columbia. Beset with large inland waterways, rich agricultural growing conditions, pocket deserts and clean, fish stocked lakes and creeks, this has long been prime territory for the ‘Cottage at the lake”.Fond family memories are made of times like these: sitting around the campfire, singing songs roasting wieners and staying up late, then tucking into a cozy, safe cabin by the waterfront.
Kelowna,Vernon, Shuswap lake, Penticton, Naramata, Oosyoos, Shusway lake, Calgary, BC and Alberta boast year-round recreation opportunities, with the province’s best family ski resorts, backcountry snowmobiling, snowshoeing and cross-country ski touring. There is gorgeous summer weather, abundant fruits and vegetables, wildlife viewing, birdwatching, golf and water sports as well as hiking and bicycling trails, all within easy access from your lakeside cottage.
Many visitors and recreation property owners alike are turning toward modern prefab housing as an efficient and quality alternative to do-it-yourself rustic buildings or recreational vehicles, owing to the ease of design, construction and fully custom-built options available in prefab cottages in Alberta, BC, Canada and Seattle, WA United States.
Modular cottages or prefab cottages take the worry and work out of planning and scheduling, hiring labour and contracting skilled trades people, ensuring all permits, protocol and building codes are followed. Smaller, less expensive water front lot sizes can be made to maximize the building floor plan, without giving up architectural design, comfort or quality of construction.
Prefab cottages are easy to choose, customize, design and set in place, outfit with modern amenities, and luxury natural surface finishing. Alternative fuel and electrical systems, such as solar panels, can also incorporate “green” building supplies and construction techniques to fit seamlessly into the unique stunning geography with minimal environmental impact.
Prefab cottage homeowners can choose large glass spans, skylights and balcony glass to maximize the million dollar views and enjoy year-round sun in one of Canada’s premiere recreational playgrounds. As lot-sizes decrease and building restrictions become more exacting and stringent, prefab homes are built to code, have consistent quality measures, are constructed of durable structural steel frames and can be designed to fit on smaller site footprints as perfect second-family recreational properties.
Many cabin-homeowners choose prefab modular cottages for their efficient use of space, ease of design and speed of construction, without compromising quality. Smaller, energy efficient and vastly customizable, a modular prefab cottage, cabins and homes would be the perfect cost-efficient choice to make one’s own“getaway”, in a cottage by the lake.
