In June of this year we finally became home owners again. It took us a while to find a "cottage like" home in good condition within commuting distance to Markham, Ontario (just north of Toronto). We looked at many homes on cottage roads and even though our must have list was short, many of the homes we looked at were lacking 1 or 2 key items ... laundry, septic system, closets or storage space. What they did have were slanting floors, holding tanks, nosy neighbors (Miss Pinky), one or two had amazing lake views but homes were too small to live in. It started to get discouraging but in the end we found our piece of heaven 10 minutes from the lake with a 100 x 150ft lot. Following are a couple of interior pics from the day we took possession.
