Looking to build your dream cottage or renovate your existing cottage? We are here to help! Our team can help you in putting together the most sophisticated and elaborate or the most cozy and comfortable dream cottage.  

With over 120 years experience building, renovating and maintaining cottages in Muskoka we understand the small and big details that make a difference.

Our designers will first analyze your lot to determine the best site layout and ultimate placement of your driveway, cottage, dock, septic system, etc.  This analysis begins with examining the topography and orientation to the water, and continues with water depth, vegetation, and neighbouring structures.

Next our designers will work with you to draw up plans of your cottage, boathouse and bunkies, using every inch of space efficiently.

Then our construction teams, who are adept with working with either traditional materials (ie stone, rough timber) or more modern material will create the style you want.  The interior staff on our team will work with you to pick your perfect colours, shades, and styles you want to have.

From start to finish, The Gonneau Building Group will be there every step of the way helping create your dream space.
