From personal experience, the market remains buoyant. We're entering the fray one again with expectant eyes set on several purchases to buoy our own portfolio. Some will be rental investments, others flips. The latter is a particular field of expertise, our training ground, in fact, long before moved into TV.

We Are Ready To Lounge Around In Cottage Country

Our plan, from the start, was simple. Track down a dog rough cottage and correct every last frickin' problem. You know the deal: find the worst property on the best lake and then undertake a makeover of Jurassic proportions. Which is precisely what we did. We lifted our cottage, shook the hell out of it, and then placed it back down on brand new foundations.

Is This The Ultimate Cottage Kitchen Hack?

Just two more episodes and Cabin Pressure 3 will be in the bag. Time flies, huh? For our penultimate outing, we're cooking up a storm in the kitchen and turning tricks with a flat pack IKEA kitchen. Faced, as we were, with insubstantial (and water damaged) pine cabinetry, we had little choice but to start from scratch.

Cottage Basement 101

Colin And Justin's Bedroom Showdown

Excuse us: for the first time ever we've been at war during one of our own TV series. As you'll see on Sunday's Cabin Pressure, our long suffering director Marshall twisted our arm into a full on C&J competition, that being to fashion one guest bedroom per designer. Crucially, neither of us would be privy to the other's plan. But which do you prefer?

Building Our Cottage Snowroom...I Mean, Sunroom

OK -- we're gonna say this right here, right now. Canadians are obsessed with the weather. So imagine the ensuing delight when our allotted timetable to build a sunroom looked like it might somehow align with a period of bright, sunny early fall weather. But then Mother Nature timed her first SNOWFALL of the year to perfectly coincide with our reveal...

Our game of homes and Bunkies...

Blimey! For the love of the holy paint chart: we've been run off our feet, of late. But that's good -- operating at full tilt is just how we like it. We run our social and professional race in tandem...

Creating the Perfect Deck and Landscape

A really good deck doesn't stop at the luxuriant lumber from which it is constructed. To bring any deck (patio or terrace) alive it needs subsequent "layers." In precisely the same manner in which décor and accessories will alternate interior "beat," so too can visual and physical tricks make your exterior scheme look "considered."
