Does Village Builders Build Waterfront Custom Homes on Georgian Bay?


Do you build waterfront custom homes on Georgian Bay?


Yes we do build homes on the waterfront of Georgian Bay. We have built quiet a few custom homes on that body of water.

Here is one home that we built on the waterfront that is one of my personal favorites.

It is a craftsmen style custom home that is set facing North over the southern shores of Georgian Bay. It has dark wood siding on the outside with Red Loewen windows for dramatic affect. The roof of the home is finished with Enviroshake shingles that have a 50 year warranty and have the look of real cedar shingles with the durability of a steel roof. The home is built to be extremely energy efficient with the exterior walls built out of Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF), triple pain windows and spray foam insulation installed in the ceilings and walls that are not built out of ICF.

The home is so well built that when you are inside the home you are unable to hear even the fieriest storms that come roaring off the great lakes.

Inside the home is heated with a high efficiency natural gas furnace for the upstairs of this spacious retreat and the entire first floor is heated with a natural gas boiler that feeds the efficient in-floor radiant heating system. This keeps the home a consistent even temperature throughout those long winter months.

The entire first floor is finished in Limestone with only the two bedrooms that are on the first floor finished in carpet.

The home is trimmed in fir and stained a wonderful hard red.

The kitchen is spacious and flows into the dining room that is positioned with a wonderful view of the water.Custom granite counter tops with mineral veins running throughout them catch the eye in an open concept kitchen with a wonderful view of the water.

There is even a custom made cabinet in the mudroom that has built in cages for the family pets to stay in when they are needed to be placed in a quiet space. That’s not the only thing that is for Fido, beside the custom cages is a dog shower to help wash the mud off from playing in the lake.

The great room is the focal point of the home, it has soaring ceilings with fir timbers and a t&g fir ceilings. The entire space is dominated by a 28 ft wide mason built Rumford fireplace. This is truly a welcoming space to entertain everyone or relax with a simple glass of wine and a good book.

The home is truly one of the nicest homes we have every constructed.
